Ex-Lollobrigida manager indicted for taking advantage

Andrea Piazzolla accused of profiting from mental vulnerability

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 9 - Screen icon Gina Lollobrigida's former manager was indicted Thursday for allegedly taking advantage of his client's psychological vulnerability.
    Andrea Piazzolla is accused of profitting from an undue influence over a fragile and weakened personality.
    Prosecutors say he seized large parts of the 1950s and 60s bombshell's patrimony and spent it all for himself.
    The trial will start on December 1.
    Lollobrigida, 93, better known to Italians as 'La Lollo', long vied with fellow Italian bombshell Sophia Loren and French sex kitten Brigitte Bardot for the title of the world's sexiest woman.
    In 1955 she starred in a film called La Donna Piu Bella del Mondo (The World's Most Beautiful Woman), which became her signature movie.
    The daughter of a furniture manufacturer from a mountain village outside Rome, Subiaco, she made over 60 films including some during the 1990s.
    Since retiring from cinema Lollobrigida has tried her hand as a photographer, sculptor, photojournalist and a fashion and cosmetics executive.
    The diva was divorced in 1971 after a 22-year marriage to a Yugoslav doctor, by whom she had a son. (ANSA).
