Personal Quote:

My whole family went away to America to live. They said "How can you stay alone in Italy?" But I used their absence to become an actress. That's how I became Monica Vitti.

Trivia:

After Antonioni ended their relationship in 1967, Vitti reinvented herself as a leading comedienne in films like La Ragazza con la Pistola and Dramma della Gelosia. See more »
