Miss Italia, Lucia Bose flew to Madrid to shoot the film "Muerte de un ciclista" (Death of a cyclist).
At the airport she met the producer, Manuel Goyanes, and Luis Miguel, who introduces her to the Italian actress. At first she thought he was just a blowhard bully, but in the end he ends up conquering her inspiring interest. They soon overcome the language barrier that separates them and the fact that she knows nothing about bullfighting. With still haven`t kissed, he asked her to marry him. And they did in Las Vegas on March 1, 1955.
Lucia has confessed, their first year of marriage was not too idyllic: "It was a very hard experience. I did not speak Spanish and I do not know anything, he did not speak Italian. I think that`s how the passion was born, because we did not understand each other. When we began to understand who he was and who I was, the crisis began."
But the matador knew well how to compensate: "It never ceased to amaze me the incalculable force of his sexual incontinence," says the actress.
Shortly after marrying she became pregnant and forced to marry through the church to quell the scandals. The ceremony took place on 19 October 1955.
Luis Miguel returns to the bullfighting arenas abroad and their first son, little Michael, was born in Panama on April 3, 1956. His second offspring, Lucia, born in 1957 and Paola, god fathered by Picasso, born in 1960.
The marriage of Lucia and Luis Miguel is maintained for years, but their differences are accentuated over time, especially her lack of interest for the bulls. She never came into the clan "Dominguin", and the Dominguíns never liked her. On the other hand, the infidelities of the bullfighter also took its toll. "I, in a matter of horns, a gold medal," Lucia asserted.
