 Seventeen melodies to celebrate a beloved and unforgettable actress. Ingrid Bergman had a fresh beauty and bright talent which set her to Hollywood's attention after five years of career in native Sweden. Her American career lasted less than ten years, but her name is still remembered among the top Hollywood stars and linked to legendary films such as “Casablanca”, “For whom the bell tolls”, “Gaslight”, “Spellbound”, “Notorious” “Joan of Arc”.


Her anxiety on improvement career, led her to meeting with Roberto Rossellini, working for him for about seven years in Italy, linking her name to the milestones of our cinema like “Stromboli”, “Europe '51”, “Journey to Italy” before starting a worldwide career covering latest twenty-five years of her life and saw her engaged not only in cinema, under the direction of Renoir, Donen, Lumet, Minnelli, Bergman, but also on stage and in television, always followed by faithful and growing response from the audience.

Inattentive of fashion, Ingrid has crossed the century and the world (she lived in Sweden, United States, Italy, France and England) with great talent and a formidable ability to starting over.

As often likely repeat "Happiness is good health and a bad memory". But in our memory, imprint of her grace is unforgettable.
