About this author

Italian film director and writer, whose most famous films include La Strada (1955), La Dolce Vita (1960), and 8 1/2 (1963). Fellini began his career as a cartoonist, journalist, and scriptwriter. Once he remarked, "I make pictures to tell a story, to tell lies and to amuse." Although Fellini opposed in principle literary adaptations and wrote all his scripts, he used works from such writers as Edgar Allan Poe (Tre Passi del delirio), Petronius (Satyricon), and Casanova. Four of Fellini's movies won Oscars for best foreign-language film.
