The American Film Institute announced today that luminous Italian movie icon Sophia Loren will receive a special Tribute on the penultimate night of AFI FEST 2014, which runs November 6 through 13 in Hollywood.

AFI FEST will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of her glamorous, Oscar-nominated role in Vittorio De Sica's "Marriage Italian Style" with a restored print, and a live discussion that will survey Loren's storied career. She will also present her son Edoardo Ponti's new short "The Human Voice," in which Loren stars and speaks Italian.

From pinup bombshell to serious art film actress and Hollywood star, Loren has commanded the screen for over six decades, winning her Oscar in 1962 for De Sica's "Two Women." She has also won Best Actress at Cannes, Venice's Career Golden Lion, and honorary prizes from the Cesars, the Berlinale and the Oscars.

More info on how to attend here. "Marriage Italian Style" was restored by Cineteca di Bologna, the Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage and Memory Cinema, in collaboration with Surf Film. The Tribute is November 12.
