Description: Milano: Electa, 2011. 25cm., pbk., 192pp. illus. Exhibition held at Ara Pacis, Roma. Italian text. Summary: Few people are aware that Audrey Hepburn lived in Rome for more than 20 years, in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, when she was married to Mel Ferrer and then Andrea Dotti, with whom she had two children, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti respectively. This book focuses on the years spent in Rome and contains nearly 200 photographs - not posed for great photographers but snapshots, some previously unpublished, showing her in her everyday life as she strolls around the city, with her family and her sons, arriving at or leaving the airport and besieged by journalists at film premieres. The photographic story unfolds to illustrate Audrey's gradual transformation from distant Hollywood diva to an established actress in Italy and a woman and mother who adopted Rome as her home after leaving the cinema in the 1970s and formed a strong bond with the city. The book also contains set photographs of the films she made in those years (Roman Holiday, War and Peace, The Nun's Story) and the famous clothes and accessories that helped create her distinctive style.
