The great actress told herself with an open heart, talking about her career and her wonderful family.
Growing up in an atmosphere full of love, Simona Izzo has had great examples since childhood. His father Renato was a phenomenal voice actor and passed on passion and talent to his daughters: all four girls have in fact followed in their father's footsteps, carrying on what has now become a family tradition. "As a child I always wanted to prevail, I wanted to be the most watched" – admitted Izzo to the microphones Today is another day – "My twin Rossella was much better than me in everything, so I was the one most pampered by her sisters" .
Her career has been brilliant from the very beginning, when she was still a child. Over the years, Simona has had the opportunity to lend her voice to some of the Hollywood icons par excellence, such as Kim Basinger and Jessica Lange. At the same time she has ranged in many other roles: actress, screenwriter, TV presenter, director.

The relationship with the Roman singer-songwriter ended after a few years, and today Simona talks about it with a bit of bitterness: "I think she dedicated some songs to me, but it would have been better if she had dedicated more affection to me. And then he was unable to have a friendship with me, although he tried for a while, and this is a pain for me. "

I immediately thought: 'He will be the father of my children'. Even if it didn't happen ”. Ricky instead had a lot of hesitation and took longer to understand that Simona was the woman he wanted by his side. In the end, however, their relationship took off – despite dad Ugo Tognazzi's objections. And the two got married in 1995, reaching an important milestone today: they have been together for 35 years.
