  • Description

    FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE GATHERED AT PREDAPPIO IN ITALY, MARCH 3, TO SEE ROMANO MUSSOLINI - YOUNGEST SON OF THE FORMER ITALIAN - MARRY IN A CHURCH THAT HAD BEEN BUILT BY HIS FATHER. HIS BRIDE WAS SCICOLONE, AS SISTER OF THE FILM STAR ACTRESS SOPHIA LOREN.

    SHORTLY BEFORE THE CEREMONY THE GROOM FAINTED AND HAD TO RECEIVE ATTENTION. INSIDE THE CHURCH THERE WAS SUCH A CONSTANT BUBBLER OF VOICES THAT THE BISHOP OF BERTINORO, WHO OFFICIATED, THREATENED TO POSTPONE THE SERVICE. PRESS PHOTOGRAPHERS CREATED CONFUSION IN THEIR ATTEMPTS TO GET NEAR THE ALTAR, AND THE BRIDE TOO, FAINTED AFTER THE CEREMONY.

    NEO-FASCIST DIGNITARIES SUPPORTED THE 33-YEAR OLD GROOM. HE WAS ALSO ATTENDED BY SOME MEMBERS OF HIS JAZZ BAND. WHERE THE COUPLE WILL SPEND THEIR HONEYMOON HAS BEEN KEPT A SECRET.

    AFTER THE CEREMONY, SOPHIA LOREN WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT IN HER ROLLS ROYCE CAR. A YOUNG ITALIAN SCHOOL TEACHER WAS KILLED.
