Anna Magnani was an Oscar winning actress who dominated Italian cinema for more than three decades and at the same time acted in many hit Hollywood films. Although she was not very glamorous in the accepted sense of the term she came to be known as ‘La Lupa’ or ‘The Living She Wolf Symbol’ of Italian cinema. Some also referred to her as ‘The Perennial Toast of Rome’. Indeed, she was rather short and plump, her eyes were encircled by deep shadows and a disorganized mass of hair always surrounded her face; yet she bubbled with earthiness that her fans found so very fascinating. More importantly, she could portray all kinds of emotions so strongly that when she laughed the spectators laughed with her and when she cried, they could feel the sadness in their heart. Personally, she was a bundle of contradiction. She had such a violent temper and had known to throw plates and glasses in fits of rage.
