Roma, The Eternal City, these are some of the names that the storied and beautiful capital of Italy—and the cradle for Western civilization–have been called.
Birthplace of the Roman Empire, home of the Roman Catholic Church and the Holy See, Rome is one of the most important cities in all the world, whether it is culture, religion and the arts.
Whether it is well-known fashion brands such as Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Prada or Dolce & Gabbana, historic landmarks such as the Colosseum and the Vatican, the historic 2,000 year-old plus metropolis of 4.3 million is also home to some of the world’s most beautiful women to ever walk the planet.
One of those being Swedish-born fashion and glamour model Allison Liselotte DuBois.
Born Anita Liselotte Baratta, the slender, long-legged 5’7 Nordic-born stunner was raised in the Swedish captial city of Stockholm before settling in the Italian capital.
From one capital to another, Dubois left her own distinctive mark in modeling.
