Photography

Samugheo, Chiara (1935)

Chiara Samugheo’s early works were oriented towards photojournalism as she observed the suburbs of Napoli or life in prisons. Yet in the late 1950s, the Italian photographer preferred to dedicate herself to artists and film stars. With her elegant, dignified and sometimes playful images, she helped establish the celebrity of yearning starlets that she transformed into beautiful and glamorous icons. From Sophia Loren to Jeanne Moreau alongside Claudia Cardinale and Silvana Mangano, Chiara Samugheo revealed the graceful allure of her sitters with the help of soft tones, striking compositions and backgrounds alongside delicate lightings. The first woman to become a professional photographer in Italy, she was nicknamed One of the Seven Queens of Rome, as unalterable and imposing as the Seven Hills of the Eternal City.
