Lucia Bosè (28 January 1931 – 23 March 2020): Italian actress.
The Italian actor Lucia Bosé, who has died aged 89, having contracted coronavirus, was much admired in two landmark films of the 1950s: Michelangelo Antonioni’s first feature, Cronaca di un Amore (Story of a Love Affair, 1950), and Juan Antonio Bardem’s Muerte de un Ciclista (Death of a Cyclist, 1955). The latter changed Bosé’s life, as she met the bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguín when the film was shot in Spain. They married within two months and their relationship gained Bosé greater international attention than any of her films had. Although she gave up acting for several years, she still occasionally appeared in prestigious films. The Guardian.
