At a funeral service for Gina Lollobrigida Fans, relatives, companions and political dignitaries said goodbye to the Italian actress on Thursday in Rome. “You are a queen!” shouted many people when the coffin of the artist, who died at the age of 95, was carried from the central Piazza del Popolo to the church of Santa Maria in Montesanto.

Lollobrigida was in a relationship with the Spaniard in 2006, but then described him as a marriage swindler. “I loved her very much,” Rigau said, according to the media. Some passers-by shouted at him, “Go home! Scammers! Shame on you!”
