Law student, Sofia Marilù Trimarco, was crowned Miss Universe Italy 2019 on Sunday, August 25 at the Cinecittà World’s Teatro 1 in Rome.
The 20-year-old Mediterranean beauty from Buccino beat 23 other contestants during the finals of the national pageant. She succeeds last year’s winner, Erica De Matteis.
Sofia will now prepare to represent Italy at the Miss Universe 2019 pageant, whose schedule and venue are yet to be officially announced by the Miss Universe Organization.
Italy is yet to win its first Miss Universe crown. The country’s highest placement was first runner-up, with Daniela Bianchi in 1960 and Roberta Capua in 1987.
