He is the son of actress Sophia Loren, producer Carlo Ponti, Sr. (December 11, 1912 - January 10, 2007), the brother of conductor Carlo Ponti, and married to Sasha Alexander, an American actress - they have two children - a 15 year old daughter named Lucia and 10 year old son named Leonardo. In his twenty year career, Edoardo directed a number of award winning films and plays. Recently, he wrote and directed the must see 2021 Golden Globe Awards nominated film, The Life Ahead that can be viewed on Netflix. His Mother, Sophia Loren, Ibrahima Gueye, Abril Zamora, Renato Carpentieri and Babak Karimi all star in this incredible story, based upon the 1975 novel The Life Before Us by Romain Gary. The 2021 GLAAD Media Awards nominated The Life Ahead for Outstanding Film. The film has received many nominations and wins, and so did, “Io Sì,” (Seen), the beautiful and original song that Laura Pausini and Diane Warren specifically wrote for The Life Ahead. In fact, after their win at the 2021 Golden Globes, in the category of Best Original Song – Motion Picture, they received an Oscar nomination at the 93rd Academy Awards, for Best Original Song and for making it the first song sung entirely in Italian to be nominated, and for Best Song at the 26th Critics' Choice Awards. According to Deadline, the online entertainment industry news site, The Life Ahead became a streaming hit, peaking within Netflix's top ten in 37 different countries. In this episode, Edoardo and I discuss some pivotal lessons that can be learned from The Life Ahead including empathy, connectivity, the struggles of life trauma, the beauty of humanity, and how love can build everlasting bonds between human beings. Edoardo is a brilliant, sensitive and talented filmmaker and director. I'm exceedingly grateful for his humanity and understanding of one of Wellness World USA™'s core principals and most important practices - kindness - being kind to yourself so that you can help others is precisely what we define as Selfcare. Furthermore, Edoardo talks about his latest project with Sony Pictures Television’s TriStar, a TV Series adaptation of Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano. His expertise is in bringing life to stories where people triumph over tragedy and not allow themselves to be defined by trauma, but rather the HOPE, EMPATHY, and GROWTH gained when having experienced profound pain and suffering. Emotional and mental affliction leads to rebirth only when one has the courage and grace to embrace wellness and selfcare, the faith to persevere, and the passion to make the world a better place. Thank you Edoardo for participating in Tita Talks and sharing your humanity with all of us!!
