RIP Piera Degli Esposti (1938 – 2021)

Piera Degli Esposti was an Italian actress known for performances in films such as Il Divo (2008).

The film The Story of Piera (1983), directed by Marco Ferreri, was based on a book of hers, but she did not star in that film.

RIP Lucia Bosè (1931 – 2020)

Toute la mémoire du monde (1956)

Lucia Bosè was an Italian actress with a long and fruitful career.

I choose to remember her by a documentary film she did not act in.

In Toute la mémoire du monde (1956), an identified photo of her is on the cover of a fictional book with the title Mars.

The cover of that book is unveiled at 9:42. The audience follows the book around the library as it makes its way to the shelves.
