My phisical look

“In America, “ talent” is the only thing that helps you to reach the top, no matter whether you’re tall or short as I am. Look at Mickey Rooney or Judy Garland for instance….Here in Italy, on the contrary, critics seemed to look at me only as a sexless girl. That’s not true, because the public, on the contrary, always accepted me singing “ W la pappa col pomodoro “ on one side, but on the other, the famous love Lara’s theme song from the “Doctor Zivago “picture”.
