Simonetta Stefanelli stars as Lucrezia Borgia in Luciano Ercoli’s version of the early life of this fascinating historical persona. If the accuracy of the historical facts may be drawn into question, Ercoli certainly cannot be contested in his attempt to bring all the more sensational and lascivious details to the screen. The film is actually very good looking, and Stefanelli is a gorgeous Lucrezia. Simonetta Stefanelli performers as the pitiless Lucrezia Borgia in Luciano Ercoli’s take on the Borgia household.
