Digital Photo Restoration
This image began as a 35mm color slide. Taken about 1973 at the home of Sofia Loren and Carlo Ponti in Amalfi, Italy. The slide was improperly cleaned and damaged in the process. After creating a high resolution digital scan, the image was painstakingly restored.
The man in the photo is likely one of Sophia’s two younger paternal half-brothers, Giuliano and Giuseppe Romilda
This image began as a color print. Faded, yellowed and dull from age. A high resolution digital scan was made. Then the color, contrast, and sharpness were adjusted and restored.
