An Obituary

Mariangela Melato
So long
And farewell
Mariangela Melato –
Versatile actress
Of the Italian stage
And screen.

You took the
Sex
In good humour
Along with the swearing
That marked
So many of
Wertmüller’s
Films.

As Salomé
You were
Scintillating;
In Swept Away,
You were a
Shipwrecked snob.
Well,
I guess this
Is your last
Affair.
