"I suffered a lot during my childhood and I have not forgotten my origins," said actress Gina Lollobrigida after her appointment by FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf in 1999. "Now this formal title gives me an opportunity to play a first-hand role in the fight against world hunger."

Since then, Ms Lollobrigida has participated in several FAO fundraising and awareness-raising events aimed at fighting hunger. In 1999 she participated in a celebrity auction organized by Arab Radio and Television in Cairo. In 2000 she was a guest on the Italian television programme La Cometa della Fortuna, dedicated to FAO and she has taken part in several charity events in Florence.

From May to September 2001, Ms. Lollobrigida participated in a number of Italian TV progammes where she spoke about her role as FAO Ambassador (Rai Uno Mattina, Domenica In etc.).

In June 2002, Gina Lollobrigida attended the World Food Summit: Five Years Later and spoke extensively about her role as FAO Ambassador during a press conference organized on this occasion.
