Ever since the empire of Rome placed the boot-shaped country of Italy as the rulers of the world, Italian women have paraded their beauty and sexuality. Italian women have been some of the hottest women on the planet since that time. Actresses, singers, cooks, models…it seems that the women of Italy are hot no matter what they do.
Creating a list of the hottest Italian women that is limited to just ten is a daunting task. It is like trying to pick the ten most beautiful apples from an orchard. Nevertheless, this list is as close to perfection as possible. Here are the ten hottest Italian women Italy has unleashed on the world:
10 – Sophia Loren
The first hot actress and Italian superstar, Ms. Loren sparked many a fantasy in her rise to stardom. Born Sofia Villani Scicolone in Rome, she won a beauty pageant at age 14 and went on to win an Academy Award, a Grammy, five Golden Globes, a BAFTA, Laurel and Cecil B. DeMille award and the Honorary Academy Award. The personification of hottest Italian women has to start with her.
9 – Alyssa Milano
This Bensonhurst bombshell made her presence known when she was just eleven years old alongside Tony Danza on “Who’s The Boss”. She went on to bring her grown up curves to “Melrose Place” and then “Charmed”. She is currently the hostess of “Project Runway” and one of the stars of “Mistresses”, a part that no doubt many men would enjoy a private screening of.
8 – Giada DeLaurentiis
This Italian hottie is known for that other sexy commodity, her skill in the kitchen. The granddaughter of film producer Dino DeLaurentiis was born in Rome raised in Los Angeles and studied cooking in Paris. The five feet two inch petite powerhouse has earned three Emmy Awards, a Gracie Award and induction into the Culinary Hall of Fame, proving that sexy can be used in the kitchen as well, making her one of the hottest Italian women today.
7 – Drea De Matteo
One of the saddest scenes in the Sopranos was losing this hottie to a contract hit. This Queens, New York lovely lady played Adriana on the Sopranos, Gina Tribbiani on the Friends spin-off Joey, Angie Bolen on Desperate Housewives and is currently known as Wendy Case on The Sons of Anarchy. She currently lives in New York City.
6 – Gwen Stefani
The super-sexy singer is only half-Italian, but projects the hot Italian image in every project she is involved in. Her ancestry boasts a distant link to another hot Italian singer, a certain Madonna Louise Ciccone. Gwen is the founder and singer for the group No Doubt and has branched into clothing lines, perfumes and a brief foray into acting. She played another dazzlingly hot femme fatale named Jean Harlow in The Aviator.
5 – Monica Bellucci
One of the hottest Italian women, Monica Bellucci burst into the fashion industry as a model when she was just thirteen years old. Thirteen years later, she was the prominent model from Paris to New York and working her way towards lists of hottest women of all time and most desirable women. Her film career started with small parts in movies like Bram Stoker’s Dracula and moved on to better parts such as Persephone in The Matrix series. Ms. Bellucci can whisper naughty things in one’s ear in Italian, French, English and Persian making her just as smart as she is sexy.
4 – Asia Argento
This multi-talented Roman beauty is the daughter of horror film director Dario Argento. She says her childhood often saw her depressed. She also says her father would read her his scripts as bedtime stories. Coincidence? At any rate, she created her name as an actress with her first part at age nine. By the time she was twenty-one she had already won two of Italy’s version of the Academy Awards. Other talents of this Italian beauty are shown in her musical career, her writing career and her directorial career.
3 – Federica Ridolfi
This Roman goddess is the daughter of Italian actor Gianni Ridolfi who shared the screen with one of the hottest Italian women ever, Sophia Loren. Apparently, just being in the screen legend’s company can rub off and Frederica is the proof. She is considered somewhat a national treasure in Italy these days. Her claims to fame are her dancing career, her appearances on Italian television, a modest acting career and her work for Quelli che… il calico, a sports show based in Milan.
2 – Rossella Brescia
This gorgeous Italian actress is also a former ballerina. She was born on August 20, 1971 in Martinafranca, Italy. Her beauty combined with the taunt dancer’s body she still maintains is enough to put her squarely on any list of the hottest Italian women…or any women anywhere! Beside her work on Italian television in shows like “Colorado Café” and “Matinee”, the sexy Ms. Brescia also appears in stage productions.

1 – Eleonora Pedron
Born on July 13, 1982 this statuesque model and actress from Padua, Italy was crowned Miss Italia 2002. She followed this feat with time as a weathergirl on Italian television but was removed for being “too sexy” for the serious subject of weather. She has appeared in only Italian movies to date. As far as her American audience is concerned, for now just cruel fate keeps this classic Italian vixen from our movie theater screens. However, Hollywood is sure to notice one of the hottest Italian women in the world quickly enough and find the perfect spot for her American debut. As far as those who admire this lovely lady, they say to just put her on screen and have her walking around a bit…that should be good enough!
