Sophia Loren received the honorary citizenship of her hometown in southern Italy on Wednesday


Film legend Sophia Loren has been granted the honorary citizenship by people of her hometown in southern Italy, for which they have a ceremony held on Wednesday in Pozzuoli, just outside Naples. Receiving the honor with tears in her eyes, Loren said, "Thank you, thank you, I don't know if I deserve it."

Compared Loren to other film divas, like Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, governor of the region around Naples, Antonio Bassolino, praised the 70-year-old beauty for her ability in keeping her feet on the ground because she had grown up with "strong values."
