Early life

Anna Ilona was born in Budapest, Hungary. Her stepfather was an official in the Ministry of the Interior, her mother a midwife. In 1964 she began working for a Hungarian modeling agency, M.T.I. In her memoirs and in a 1999 TV interview, she claimed that she had provided Hungarian authorities with information on American diplomats staying at a Budapest luxury hotel where she worked as a maid in the late 1960s.[4]

Pornography and show business career

Naturalized by marriage and settled in Italy, she met pornographer Riccardo Schicchi in the early 1970s, and, beginning in 1973, achieved fame with a radio show called "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?" (French: Do you want to sleep with me?) on Radio Luna. For that program she adopted the name "la Cicciolina," which translates, loosely, as "cuddles".[4] She has referred to her male fanbase and later the Italian parliament as "cicciolini", translating loosely as "little tubby boys".[2] Although she appeared in several films from 1970, she made her debut under her own name in 1975 with "La Liceale," whose U.S. title was "The Teasers," playing a lesbian classmate of Gloria Guida. In 1978, on the RAI show "C'era due Volte", her breasts were the first to be bared live on Italian TV.[4]
