(1921-1994)

Italian film actress. Inherent talent Mazin connection grotesque lyricism, subtle psychology revealed in films directed by Fellini, set (her husband Mazin): "Variety Lights," "White Sheik," "The Road" (in domestic box office, "They wandered on the roads"); " Nights of Cabiria, "" Juliet and spirits, "" Ginger and Fred. "

When something about it, probably, will write the book, will remove the film and call them something like: "The Double Life of the great actress," or "the mystery of suffering Juliet." Many women know that the bitterness of the existence of ambiguity in his own family, many actresses have suffered from the burden of popularity, but Mazin these two factors are mutually complicate each other. She was always careful to hide their personal lives, and sometimes because of the incredible efforts of this she was able - impeccable intelligence Mazin stopped even knew measure the paparazzi. But interest in the great Fellini, with whom Juliet has divided fifty years of life leave no hope for privacy.

Maestro was created for publicity, scandals, love affairs - that demanded his bright, sparkling creativity. One of the actresses, Sandra Milo, openly trumpeted in the press about "my dear, Federico", allowed in his own book, I philosophize about the nature of Fellini. She writes that "insatiable hunger with what Grando Fefe pounced on every available female" refers not to the usual lust, but only to a "treasure."

Perhaps it was: work must also something to eat, and grateful posterity does not matter how many women were crying into my pillow, inspiring master on another masterpiece. But the clever, subtle Juliet, which itself was a very important person, the husband of treason brought special, with nothing comparable to the suffering. She knew that many years of their life together it is in this great director found a "crystal ball", his abrasive edge of remarkable talent. From carnal pleasures Fellini ran away into a world where reigned Juliet, the world of spirituality into the world of understanding and love.

To its credit, Mazin must say that, despite the anguish of loneliness (many weary evening, despite the shameful revelations of the many fans of the director, Juliet was carrying the cross lawful wife Fellini with angelic patience.

Only once, when the actress Sandra Milo published a book, brazenly exposing intimate life Federico, Mazin allowed itself to explode. blossomed Press reports that the greatest couple Italy splits. Gradually, however, the conflict had subsided. Apparently, the threat of losing his Juliet is so scared Masters that he would prefer all the time away from secular life, hidden from prying journalists. Nevertheless, after several months tightened, restrained Mazin to question a curious reporter: "How is the wife revered and adored like no other, women human?" replied the world of Cabiria smile - smiling through tears: "When you know that it is still with you, once again gives you the roses, and wrote tender letters, then you feel pretty good. "

Well, Juliet knew, for the sake of happiness - to be loved by a genius - she sacrificed her self-esteem. He chose this small, skinny, no skater girl as their only among the many contenders in a distant war 1942. Mazin arrived in Rome from a small provincial town where the family teacher and humble servant she grew up in austere, but warm atmosphere.

Enrolling in a University, Juliet diligently studied literature and archeology, but its open temperament, active nature, the immediate delight of the world is demanding much greater splash than they can give rigorous classrooms. Girl persistently possessed thought about acting. Anything that looks summed up, nothing that growth did not come out, nothing that "skips" severoitalyansky accent ... Importantly, she has a passionate desire for work and a sincere desire to tell the world something different, undercurrent, something that no one can tell.

Unusual, clown, mime talent Mazin spotted in student theater, and the professional Roman dramatic scenes. She gets the first role, willingly grabs tucked opportunity podnabratsya experience on the radio. Here her inheritance - funny skits that an unknown author signed: "Federico." Soon he was himself - long-legged dark-haired handsome man, whose name has been little known, including "cinematic" circles. "I always thought that my meeting with Juliet was predetermined by fate itself, and I do not think it could have turned out differently ..."

They married in 1943.

But how many times Federico had to justify to friends, to explain the reason for this marriage. Surrounding could not grasp that united such different people. Did not understand how it Fefe, admired busty, Rubens women notice a weak field, only the "feast of the flesh," chose life girlfriend unobtrusive creature, rather like a tomboy, boy. Is this woman can be in human society, a public profession, perhaps it may be interested in a pretentious Bohemian? However, Fellini already knew - that fascinates him in Juliet, do not be indifferent to the world. He felt that his own talent enough to show everyone the real beauty of his wife.

For Juliet, as any loving woman, dreams of a career overshadowed. Now in her soul reigned only he, the all-powerful prince, who blessed the poor Cinderella. "She was fragile and needed protection. Sweet and innocent, good-natured and trusting. I ruled it was next to her giant. She always looked up to me - and I was fascinated." Gone also are the dreams of acting path, youthful ambition, the desire to worship.

She has enough reverence only one coveted men, who by his irresistible charm, and what must be confessed, considerable experience has made them the night of love is inimitable. Now all the mental powers of Juliet, who admired her earlier teachers were directed to one single, her "dear genius." They seem to have concluded then, in the heat of passion, silent alliance - to bring each other to heights of creativity, with experience spiritual ecstasy, incomparable in strength with the physical rapture. Juliet, wanting to help Federico, remained in the shadows, she never dreamed of fame, considering blasphemous next to such a quantity, "puff" myself. The role that it now intended itself boils down to two simple concepts - loyal friend and mother.

First baby Juliet not to tell, the second born is so faint that it is not spent and months. Mazin itself for weeks on the verge of life and death, and when the danger was past, doctors pronounced him tormented by fear, Federico: child your wife will never happen.

After these words, for both spouses space marriage has steadily narrowed, their sense of co-existence tends to zero. Only experienced co-combustion of mind continued to continue to maintain their marriage.

Wanting to get his wife out of the doldrums, Fellini took her with him on a film by Roberto Rossellini "Payza. Here, Juliet had nothing to do "first appeared in the movie, however, among the extras. However, it is imperceptible to the audience and filmmakers appearance on Mazin has returned to life. We had to fight, fight for yourself, for a loved one. In the end, he Federico, comforting his wife once said: "My films - our children. Do not they are born in pain? And is their creator does not like them like children?"

Fate has prepared her to another inheritance, depriving mothers. In 1948, the director Alberto Lattuada, a friend of Fellini, Mazin invited to star in his film "Without self-pity." Role of a prostitute Marcello - ingenuous, impulsive, spontaneous girl with a good trusting soul - was not at home in the film, but she immediately remembered, and Juliet was awarded the prize "Silver Ribbon" awarded by Italian critics.

It was pleasant to the aspiring actress, but non-winning appearance of Juliet, like the sword of Damocles hanging over its future destiny. Maybe some directors and ventured to work with talented ugly, but the producers had flatly refused to invest in a hopeless actress. Who will go to the cinema for a film with such neeffektnoy main character?

While Mazin pestered studios, Fellini came close to directing debut. The first tape, taken together with the same Lattuadoy, "Variety Lights" has not brought huge success to its creators, but Juliet, who played a small role in the film itinerant actress, once again received the "silver tape". It could continue to collect awards for supporting roles, and after years of her critics would have written the elderly, while lamenting about ruined the talent, but Mazin loved one is a great man who wanted to make this worthy of love. In the end, how could this adorable handsome women friends to explain why, even now, when it emerged that his wife does not bring the desired offspring, they continue to live together and support each other.

It's time to open the "pantry" of her personality.

Written by Fellini's screenplay "The Road" has attracted producers, but as soon as they learned that the main role of Juliet was intended, to the proposed project interest immediately fell. Fellini insisted on swearing, explained that the role of the heroine and, in fact, the script itself was written for Mazin. Nothing helped. Hoary canons could not break even this overbearing, temperamental man as Federico. Burst into a terrible scandal: Fellini metal ink in the producer, drove him in a rage on the stairs and trampled underfoot hated contract for filming. Federico then told in flashback, that such scenes were repeated almost before each new production, because producers, as usual, tried to impose its director, performers, on that Fellini never agreed. However, the "battle" for Juliet probably was the hottest.

Fellini, of course, won. As a "surrender", he made the film without Mazin - "momma's boy" and then returned to "pass." After much debate the producers finally gave up on a crazy director, and Julia waited still starring.

The film was extremely difficult.

Fellini at the site behaved like a despot, and the most poisonous arrows of metal in it's own wife, not being able to splash out without a trace in the remaining group members. Here on the set of "Roads", Juliet began to comprehend the "science of patience" and I must say, has succeeded in its "class". She was silent when Fellini methodically searching directly on her face in a suitable way make-up, stoically endured and bullying on its head when Federico, grabbed clippers, hair personally otstrig wife covered her hair and the usual glue, so they look faded in the seaside sun. "Within three months of filming, they gave me this agony: it was impossible to wash them in the morning it is impossible to pull out from the pillow."

Whatever goal or set ourselves the producers of the film, they're even in my dreams could not foresee such an instant, unanimous, and, most importantly, the massive success of the tape. And, if for the work of the director were hot debates, the work of Mazin is beyond doubt. Her Gelsomino has become a real people's favorite, every day in her name came bags of letters from all corners of the earth: for her for advice abandoned wife to Gelsomino cried many wronged in love.

Clown face became a symbol of kindness and rebellion against the brutal, senseless world. Later, comprehending the film's success, Mazin collected letters received in a unique book with the title: "Diary of others."

On the popularity of Gelsomino warmed the hands of advertising around the world: her name got restaurants, dolls, candy, even a boat. Once is not named Juliet - and muse of Fellini, "and" child-clown "and" Chaplin in a skirt! And Chaplin himself later wrote: "This actress I admire more than anyone else." Mazin really brilliantly embodied chaplinovskuyu theme of "little man" in the female image. And although the actress has always protested against the direct identification of her with the image Gelsomino, but Fellini put it clearly that the basis for this role went to monitor his wife, her individuality. Calculation of the great master was right - the identity of Mazin is so significant that it is able to conquer the hearts of millions.

Film "The Road" couple Fellini misled ten result of a joint life, has proved very fruitful - three dozen international awards, Oscar and unconditional recognition of their creativity.

This "star" movie has become their hallmark, steel handcuffs, chained forever their names in a single chain.

Then another would be "Nights of Cabiria," no less famous and even more touching, but "expensive" Fellini offered his "muse" Juliet to an unattainable height. By Oscar for her first film were added bonuses awarded to Mazin for her role as Cabiria at international film festivals in Cannes, San Sebastian, Moscow. Enlightened person Juliet has become a symbol of Italian Cinema 1950.

Maestro played on his violin genius melody and knew - nothing else it does not add, not subtract - because she is brilliant, which is perfect. Fellini has twice invited the wife to his capture: "Juliette and the spirits" and "Ginger and Fred," but he never failed to repeat the piercing soul music Gelsomino and Cabiria. Mazin much fruitful work of other directors, but for the future, it will always be an actress and a woman Fellini Fellini.

October 30, 1993 was to be held golden jubilee of the famous couple, but on October 31 great director died at the Royal Hospital Umberto from a stroke. Terminally ill Juliet, who was present at the funeral of her husband, was like a sinister mask, one that knew and loved the whole world thanks to its "good genius" Federico.

The secret of his double life Mazin took to the grave, only half survived beloved wife. She has never spoken out about his relationship with Fellini, for posterity remained just words on his Masters "muse": "Juliet actress could not be more fully meets my designs, the requirements of my taste, meets all - and looks, and demeanor, to express their feelings and character. It actress facial expressions, intonation, clowns habits. And, perhaps above all, it is - a mysterious creature capable of making in our relationship strong desire for purity, the higher moral principles. "
