ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
L'Italia del dopoguerra, l'infanzia vissuta senza padre, gli stenti, la fame, una gran voglia di alzare la testa. E poi l'arrivo con la madre a Cinecittà, i primi lavori, l'incontro con Carlo Ponti. Una carriera che ne fa una 'Ciociara' da Oscar e costruisce, inesorabilmente, un mito del cinema mondiale. 'Non è una fiction ma la storia della nostra vita', dice Sophia Loren di questa miniserie ispirata al romanzo biografico scritto da sua sorella Maria Scicolone, dentro la quale si staglia la figura (da Sophia stessa interpretata) della volitiva madre Romilda. Tre donne non comuni, diverse l'una dall'altra, ma uguali nel gusto di affrontare, sempre, la vita a viso aperto. Oltre sette milioni di telespettatori in occasione della messa in onda su RaiUno. Il fiore all'occhiello della più recente stagione televisiva.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Sophia Loren takes on a challenging role, perhaps the most difficult of her career, playing the part of her own mother, Romilda, in "My House Is Full Of Mirrors", taken from the best selling book by her sister, Maria Scicolone. As a young girl in Pozzuoli, a picturesque seaside town near Naples, Romilda Villani's beauty wins her first place in a Greta Garbo look-alike contest. She receives film offers from America, but her parents refuse to let her go. For the rest of her life, she will try to make up for that broken dream. Romilda's first daughter, Sophia Scicolone (soon to be Loren), is born when Romilda is still young, from her relationship with Riccardo Scicolone, a glamorous but undependable man. For years, Romilda tries to make their union official, but Riccardo will not hear of marriage. Not even the birth of their second daughter, Maria, changes his mind. Romilda is strong, intelligent and witty; a complex vulnerable woman capable of unusual cruelty - masterfully portrayed by Sophia Loren. At the end of the war, a penniless Romilda takes her older daughter to Rome in search of a better life, transferring her own ambitions onto Sophia, using the girl's beauty to open up the doors of the film world once again. Sophia starts as a bit player but quickly makes a name for herself as a Photo Novel model. Shortly thereafter, major Hollywood studio directors seek her out. The miniseries depicts the extraordinary start of Sophia Loren's acting career, while giving justice to the opposite fortunes of her sister, who incidentally at the eve of Sophia's Oscar, learns she is pregnant with he first child. She lives a solitary life in the village of her birth, her musical talent stifled by her mothers oppression and obsessive reliving her own life through her famous daughter. Maria marries the wrong man, one who will never be faithful to her. At last, Romilda returns home to the picturesque ocean village, to breath the fresh ocean air, dedicating the last years of her life to music. "My House Is Full Of Mirrors" portrays a complex family, filled with love, betrayal and broken dreams, as each of the three women strives to manage their lives, together as a family, and apart through their very different experiences. It is the definitive autobiographical television series about Sophia Loren, told by her sister, and as portrayed by Sophia Loren herself, any movie lovers collectors must-have!
