During her lifetime, Lina Cavalieri (1874-1944) was often referred to as the most beautiful woman alive. She grew up in an Italian orphanage, and ran away to join a touring theatre company when she was a teenager. Moving to Paris and then to New York City, she became a popular opera singer, appeared in silent films, and published a book of beauty tips. She returned to Italy late in her life, and though she was in her mid-sixties when WWII broke out, she volunteered as a nurse. She was killed during an Allied bombing while she was trying to run to an air-raid shelter.

She is the model for Piero Fornasetti’s Tema e Variazioni series. During the 1950s, Fornasetti saw her face in an old magazine and created more than 350 images of her.
