Federico Fellini on 'Biography'

Biography: Federico Fellini



Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini (Italian: January 20, 1920 – October 31, 1993) was an Italian film director and scriptwriter. Known for his distinct style that blends fantasy and baroque images with earthiness, he is considered one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of the 20th century.

In a career spanning almost fifty years, Fellini won the Palme d'Or for La Dolce Vita, was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, and directed four motion pictures that won Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. In 1993, he was awarded an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles.


Federico Fellini was of Romagnol ancestry.

Indeed, a titan of Romagna he was just like his contemporary Pier Paolo Pasolini. Or like Raul Casadei, a big former music figure in Italy. They were all crypto Romagnol nationalists, too, I think judging from how they emphasized the area in their movies and songs. Well, maybe not. ;D
