According to Gina Lollobrigida, she has always been 'less lucky than others' - especially in love and family matters. She passed away on January 16, 2023 at the age of 95 . And in addition to a tremendous cultural legacy, she also leaves behind memories of one of the hardest times in her life: her last years. They were mainly shaped by a major legal dispute with her own son, Milko Skofic Jr. (65).
In October 2021, Milko Skofic Jr. won a legal battle he fought against his own mother, Gina Lollobrigida. With the judgment that the Supreme Court in Italy passed in favor of the 65-year-old, it deprived Lollobrigida of her own financial freedom. Because her son wanted a financial guardian for his mother, who he accused of spending her fortune - and thus his inheritance - on her assistant Andrea Piazzolla. According to Skofic, this young man is only interested in the actress' money. For 'Lollo' itself, however, it was 'my greatest happiness,' as she revealed to us in an exclusive RTL interview in December 2021.
At that time, an RTL reporter met the actress at her property in Rome . There she presented herself as a woman who actually has everything – and at the same time nothing. She was incapacitated by her son and vented her anger: 'He doesn't know that he's working against his own mother. He just wants the money and that's it.'
Piazzolla had been Gina's companion for more than twelve years. In the video above you can see how much joy he was able to give her. “Andrea is my salvation. I love him like a son. I like him because he deserves it.' Her son, on the other hand, would take away her peace. At that time, the actress drew the sad conclusion: 'I'm tired. I should be allowed to die in peace.” It was one of her last wishes, one that probably went unfulfilled for her.
How Gina Lollobrigida died is not yet known. In September 2022, she had to be hospitalized with a femoral fracture. At that time she had fallen in the house. An operation followed, which was carried out despite her advanced age and her heart problems. Afterward, her attorney, Antonio Ingroia, reported that Lollo was doing well given the circumstances.
