Non ci siamo già visti prima Marilyn mia cara?
Then French call it déjà vu, but in Italian it would be già visto. But while it may seem like you just saw this cover a few days ago, it’s actually entirely different. The Italian magazine Epoca loved Marilyn Monroe, and she was the star of many issues. The last one we shared was from the first anniversary of her death, give or take a few days. This one was published 15 August 1954, eleven years before she died, and again features an extensive set of rare photos. And just to show they weren’t giving short shrift to homegrown talent, Epoca editors also offer a very nice shot of Italian superstar Gina Lollobrigida. Scans below.
