Career[edit] Early career[edit] Ancona-born Lisi began her film career in her teens. Discovered in Rome
Rome
by two Neapolitan producers, Antonio Ferrigno and Ettore Pesce, she debuted in La corda d'acciaio (The Steel Rope, 1953). Initially, she did musical films, like E Napoli canta (Naples Sings, 1953) and the successful Questa è la vita (Of Life and Love, 1954, with the popular Totò). Nonetheless, her beauty was more valued than her talent, as seen in Le diciottenni (Eighteen Year Olds) and Lo scapolo (The Bachelor) films of 1955. Yet she filled demanding roles, particularly in La donna del giorno (1956), Eva (1962), and the spectacle Romolo e Remo
Romolo e Remo
(1961). In the late 1950s, Lisi did theater at Piccolo Teatro di Milano
Piccolo Teatro di Milano
in I giacobini by Federico Zardi under the direction of Giorgio Strehler. During the 1960s, Lisi did comedies and participated in television dramas that were widely viewed in Italy. Lisi also promoted a toothpaste brand on television with a slogan that would become a catchphrase among Italians: "con quella bocca può dire ciò che vuole" (with such a mouth, she can say whatever she wants).[1] Hollywood career[edit] Hollywood producers sought a new Marilyn Monroe

and so, Lisi debuted in Hollywood comedy as a blue-eyed blonde temptress opposite Jack Lemmon in How to Murder Your Wife
How to Murder Your Wife
(1965) and appeared with Tony Curtis in Not with My Wife, You Don't!
Not with My Wife, You Don't!
(1966). Lisi then starred with Frank Sinatra, in Assault on a Queen
Assault on a Queen
(1966), in The Girl and the General, co-starring with Rod Steiger, and in two films with Anthony Quinn, The Secret of Santa Vittoria, directed by Stanley Kramer, and the war drama The 25th Hour. She garnered attention for a photo of her 'shaving' her face that appeared on the March 1965 cover of Esquire magazine. Career renaissance in Europe[edit] To overcome her typecasting playing seductresses, Lisi sought new types of roles, of evil women or of a lover in relationships of disparate age for example. In those years, she participated in Italian productions, in Casanova 70
Casanova 70
and Le bambole
Le bambole
(1965), Arabella (1967), and Le dolci signore
Le dolci signore
(1968). Lisi also starred in The Birds, the Bees and the Italians (1965) which shared the Palme d'Or at Cannes that year. In the early 1970s, she took a temporary hiatus from acting to spend more time with her husband Franco Pesci and their son, Corrado. Nonetheless, Lisi's career underwent a renaissance with a number of projects, including Al di là del bene e del male
Al di là del bene e del male
(1977), Ernesto (1979), and La cicala
La cicala
(1980). For the film La Reine Margot (1994), Lisi's portrayal of Catherine de' Medici

won her both the César and Cannes Film Festival

awards,[2] along with a Silver Ribbon for Best supporting Actress. In 2002, Lisi starred in Il più bel giorno della mia vita. Virna Lisi

then participated in many sitcoms and TV series. Her last movie was in the Italian comedy-drama Latin Lover in 2014, shortly before her death. Death[edit] On 18 December 2014, Lisi died of lung cancer in Rome
Rome
at age 78.[3] Legacy[edit] The Argentinian band Sumo (led by Luca Prodan) made a song for her, "TV Caliente a.k.a. Virna Lisi (es)" (1986), composed by Luca Prodan, whose brother, the actor Andrea Prodan, appeared with her in the movie I ragazzi di via Panisperna
I ragazzi di via Panisperna
(1988). A Brazilian rock band named Virna Lisi (pt) (1989–1997) was named after her. Meilland International SA named a rose after her in 1989. Filmography[edit]
