Grazia Cucinotta in one sentence – Maria is one of the most beautiful women over 40 and a classic Italian beauty.
Rome is the city for everyone with an open heart and passion for history, good food, beautiful and sophisticated men and women, rich culture, delicious vine, and good time in general.
It is great being an actress because you have the chance to be a thousand different people when you act.
Being a woman for me is to dress up, to be glamorous and to make people dream.
When you are an actress, you change plans every day; you live your life between one film and another.
I grew up in a place where nothing was given, everything was a conquest, day after day.
