Event Details

Synonymous with grace, beauty and artistry, Oscar-winning actress Sophia Loren will captivate audiences with an intimate onstage conversation and Q&A. 

The prolific career of this legendary star spans over five decades earning a remarkable array of notable accolades, including the first Academy Award presented for a foreign-language role with Two Women. Decades later, in 1991, Loren received an Honorary Award from the Academy in acknowledgement of her indelible contributions to world cinema.

Born Sofia Scicolone, on Sept. 20, 1934, in Rome, an illegitimate child, she grew up in the slums of Naples during wartime in dire poverty. Her mother, a frustrated actress, instilled starring aspirations in the skinny little Sofia (she was nicknamed Stechetto–the stick–at the time). Her first taste of glamour came at fourteen when she was crowned one of twelve “Princesses of the Sea” in a beauty contest–an honor for which she earned a railroad ticket to Rome, and 23,000 lire (about $35).

Come see what she has in store for you on Sunday November 24th, 2019 at the California Center for the Arts
