Roman girls: Lou, Audrey

Lou Salomé moved to Rome when she was 21, and met Paul Reé. They became a couple, she moved to his place, and short after Friedrich Nietzsche joined them. Lou was a femme fatale, and had affairs with Rilke, Freud, and many others. This is the most famous picture of them, arranged by Nietzsche himself in Leipzig.

Roman Holiday is the first long movie by Audrey Hepburn, who was discovered by French writer Colette. Is the fairy tale of a princess and a couple of journalists, Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) and Irving Radovich (Eddie Albert).

Both Lou and Audrey had made sighed so many of us...

It is to be said that Lou was the first authentic liberal woman.
