Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Virna Lisi

Here is a lounge song by Robby Poitevin, chosen to illustrate the beauty of Virna Lisi.
Virna Lisi (born in 1937 as Virna Lisa Pieralisi - 2015) was an Italian film actress. She began her film career as a teenager in 1953. Often cast for her stunning looks, her early films included "La Donna del giorno" (1956), "Don't Tempt the Devil" (1962) and the Italian-made spectacle "Romolo e Remo" (1961). The pert and sexy star also tried her hands at Hollywood comedy as a tempting blue-eyed blonde starring opposite Jack Lemmon in "How to Murder Your Wife" (1965), and appearing with Tony Curtis in "Not with My Wife, You Don't!" (1966). In later decades, however, she began to be perceived as more than just a tasty dish, giving a wide variety of mature, award-winning performances. It all culminated in the role of a lifetime with the film "La Reine Margot" (1994), in which she played a marvelously malevolent Catherine de Medici and won both the César and Cannes Film Festival awards, not to mention the David di Donatello award, the Italian version of the "Oscar". She alternated filming activity with television and stage acting, namely at Piccolo Teatro di Milano, where she did "I giacobini" by Federico Zardi, under the direction of Giorgio Strehler. She was one of the stars launched as a successor to Marilyn Monroe in the United States, in the late 1960's. Lisi was cast in the title role in "Barbarella" (1968), but she turned it down and returned to Italy. The 1980's Argentinian band "Sumo" (led by an Italian singer) made a song for her. The singer's brother is the actor Andrea Prodan, who appeared with her in the movie "I ragazzi di via Panisperna" (1988).
Enjoy Virna's glamorous beauty!
