Beautiful Photos of Sophia Loren at her Grand Roman Villa in 1964

This post was originally published on this site

In the summer of 1964, Alfred Eisenstaedt paid a visit to Sophia Loren at her grand villa in Rome that she shared with her life-long husband, producer Carlo Ponti. This could be seen as the fulfilment of the promise that Ponti made to Loren when they got married in 1957, that he would give her “the most beautiful house in the world.” And indeed it was. The magnificent lovebirds bought the 16th-century Roman villa in 1954 and began renovating it in 1960. It includes a riding stable, an aqueduct, a tennis court, an orchard an a pool house, while the main villa has a total of 50 rooms and decorated with stunning frescoed walls.

Here are 31 photographs capture Sophia Loren at her grand villa in 1964, taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt for Life:
