The former ‘Madame President’ of Italy is no longer the glamorous icon she once was, but she is still very much the woman with whom the world is connected, even if it has been for many years.
Dani Alves, now 81, was one of the world’s most successful and beloved pop stars, and a member of the pop world’s biggest and most influential families.
She was an icon of Italian culture for decades, and her voice, style and style of artistry became legendary.
Alves was married to Carlo Cipolla for nearly 30 years.
They divorced in 2008, after seven years of marriage, and the couple have three daughters, Anna, who is now 26, and Maria, 20.
The Italian-born Alves’ last major recording was in 2011, when she sang the classic classic, “I Love You,” with Marlon Brando.
Alvares career was defined by her beauty and elegance.
Her hair was long and frizzy, and she had a flowing, dark, flowing gown and veil on her head.
She wore a long-sleeved blouse with a large black veil, and wore her hair in a braided bun, a style that was popular among the Italian fashion industry in the early 1980s.
She often sported a pair of high heels, and always had a lot of make-up on.
Alve was a member and producer of the TV show “The Realness,” and a producer of movies like “Pompeii,” “Cinema” and “The Golden Girls.”
She was also a host of “Poniato” on the Italian national TV network, and was one-half of the popular Italian-French duo “Sommero.”
She was a director of a variety show, “The Duchess of Burgundy,” which aired from 1987 to 1991 on the Canal Plus network.
She also appeared on numerous movies and television shows, including “Dancing With the Stars,” “Gilda,” “The Princess Bride,” “House of Cards,” “Valkyrie” and other shows.
She had two children with her first husband, Giovanni Di Nolfio, who was born in Italy.
Alved died on Monday at her home in Florence.
She died of heart failure at age 79.
