Life and careerEdit

Born in Bari, at seven years old Lojodice moved to Rome with her parents and her three brothers, when her father, a lawyer, was appointed general manager of the public company INAIL.[1] At fourteen years old she started doing acting auditions, and in 1955 she made her acting debut, chosen by Luchino Visconti for a minor role in the stage play Il crogiuolo.[1][2] At 16 years old Lojodice enrolled the Accademia Nazionale di Arte Drammatica Silvio D'Amico without finishing the course.[1] In 1958 she debuted in a main role, replacing Monica Vitti (who had contrasts with the director Giacomo Vaccari) in the TV-drama L’imbroglio.[1]

After a sentimental relationship with actor-director Leopoldo Trieste and a failed marriage with stage actor Mario Chiocchio, in the mid-1960s she started with her then husband Aroldo Tieri a long professional and sentimental relationship which lasted until his death in 2006.[1]

Active in cinema, theatre, television, radio, fotoromanzi and commercials, Lojodice is also a very active voice actress and dubber; she was the narrator voice during the 2004 tour Cattura il sogno by Renato Zero.[1] She also hosted the 1964 edition of the Sanremo Music Festival together with Mike Bongiorno.[3]

Her sister Leda is a choreographer.[1] She has two children from her first marriage.[1]
