Italian screen and stage scribe Tullio Pinelli, the longtime Federico Fellini collaborator best known for co-penning Fellini's "La Dolce Vita," and "8 1/2," died March 7 in Rome.At the moment I can't find a full obituary in English, but will post a link if I find one. Here are Tullio Pinelli's credits on IMDB and a short entry on Wikipedia.
He was 100.
Nominated for four Oscars, all for Fellini works, Pinelli was the scribe with whom Fellini worked with the most in what has been considered an almost symbiotic rapport. But Pinelli also worked with other Italo greats including Roberto Rossellini, Pietro Germi, and Mario Monicelli.
