Monica Bellucci is set to be celebrated in Rome. The Italian actress will be honored with the 2017 Virna Lisi award as part of the Cinema Foundation for Rome’s Cityfest series, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Launched in 2015, the award is named after Lisi, “one of the rare Italian actresses who worked frequently across Italy and Hollywood,” the source writes. “She gained fame in postwar Italian film, including starring in ‘Casanova 70’ opposite Marcello Mastroianni and later appearing with Jack Lemmon in ‘How to Murder Your Wife’ and as Catherine de Medici in ‘Queen Margot.’”
Bellucci received a César nomination, France’s equivalent to an Oscar nod, in 1997 for her supporting role in “The Apartment.” “Spectre,” “The Wonders,” the “Matrix” franchise, and “Irreversible” are among her other credits.
Bellucci will receive the award November 8.

The most-read book since Gone with the Wind looked at the coming of age struggle of an ambitious, upwardly mobile Jewish girl in the 1930s. This glossy film version gives Natalie Wood an ‘adult’ role and provides Gene Kelly with the seemingly optimal character of a troubled theatrical artiste. Good intentions aside, the show lacks guidance — and may have harmed Kelly’s acting career.
