“When I remember the moments with Marcel, I feel only regret. One part of me still thinks that if we had gotten married then, we would still be married today. Our wish was to grow old together, but that did not happen,” she wrote years later in an autobiography.
And Marcello Mastroianni himself admitted in an interview for one magazine 1987. that she was the woman he loved the most.
