In her glory days, there have been numerous articles written about Marisa Mell. So nothing special on first sight untill one reads the article! And than the info hits and shocks you to the core!
(Free translation of the article: A baby for Marisa Mell. After Ursula Andress, another German speaking actress living in Rome is expecting her first baby. Marisa Mell (35), the long standing fiancée of the movie producer and sentenced fraud Pier Luigi Torri will be a mother in 5 months! The father is the actor Gianni Macchia (28). Marisa Mell: "Our Love-Story runs for 3 years. Gianni is already the father of a 10 year old boy from a previous marriage. Why shouldn't he have a child with me?". Photo caption: Marisa Mell is expecting a baby. When it will be a girl her name will be Eurasia because she was concived in Kathmandu.)
Why is this shocking news? Officially is it always known that Marisa Mell was pregnant during the end of the sixties. Unfortunately she lost the baby due to a stress related miscarriage or as some say an abortion, that mystery was never cleared. During that pregnancy, she was in a relationship with the Italian playboy Pier Luigi Torri. For the full story you can read the entry: the "Number One" couple. This newspaper article now claims that she was expecting another child. She was not only a few weeks pregnant, still in risk to loose the child but she was already in her fourth month which gives a future mother more assurance that she can deliver a healthy baby. Other revealing news is the name of the father. Not Pier Luigi Torri as expected but the Italian actor Gianni Macchia. Gianni Macchia and Marisa Mell made 2 movies together i. c. 1980's "Traficantes di Panico" and 1990's "Sensazioni d'Amore" and in 1978 the episode "Bedelia" for the TV-series "Sam and Sally". After reading the article you just wonder what did happen with the baby! Marisa Mell never talked about this child in public or in her biography Coverlove, probably a girl, by the contence of the article! Her name would have been "Eurasia", probably a reference, not only to Kathmandu but also to Asia Argento, the daughter of famous horror and giallo director Dario Argento. Marisa Mell was always a child of the sixties and the flower power movement so her visit to Kathmandu and naming her child "Eurasia" fits perfectly in this mind frame like punk singer Nina Hagen did by calling her daughter Cosma Shiva Hagen! I have never heard that she gave birth to this child, so the possibility exists that she had the child in secret and gave it up for adoption. This is the only article dedicated to this child in a newspaper I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of them about Marisa Mell. But what about the father of the child??? How does he fit into the picture??? Where is this child now??? Another mystery to investigate deeper???
