In her youth, Gina did some modelling, and from there she went to participate successfully in several beauty contests. At around this time, she began appearing in Italian language films. In 1945, she played a part in the comedy Santarellina by Eduardo Scarpetta at the Teatro della Concordia of Monte Castello di Vibio. In 1947, Gina entered the Miss Italia pageant and came in 3rd place. The contest was won by Lucia Bosé and second place was Gianna Maria Canale – they would both go on to be actresses, though neither would come near subsequent Lollobrigida\'s success.</p> <ul> <li>More info: <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gina_Lollobrigida\" target=\"_blank\">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gina_Lollobrigida</a></li> </ul>
