>>>ANSA/ Italy mourns Ettore Scola

Film director, screenwriter dead at 84

>>>ANSA/ Italy mourns Ettore Scola

(by Stefania Fumo). Rome, January 20 - Film director Ettore Scola has died in Rome aged 84, sources said Wednesday. He had been in a coma at Policlinico Hospital's heart surgery department since Sunday night, and died late last night surrounded by wife Gigliola and daughters Paola and Silvia. "The tenderness, passion and irony of the last kiss we gave one another will stay with me forever," said Italian movie star Stefania Sandrelli. "(He) had a refined intelligence, a beautiful irony," said movie star Sophia Loren. "He was a gentleman, I was very attached to him". "We have loved you so much," tweeted actor Alessandro Gassmann, paraphrasing the title of Scola's 1974 film We All Loved Each Other So Much (C'eravamo Tanto Amati), a fresco of post World War II Italian life and politics dedicated to fellow director Vittorio De Sica. Born in the Campania town of Trevico on May 10, 1931, Scola won eight David di Donatello awards (the Italian Oscars) and was nominated for five Academy Awards in the course of his long and prolific screenwriting and directing career. In 1978 he received a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film for his film A Special Day (Una Giornata Particolare) starring Sophia Loren as a Fascist housewife who befriends her gay neighbor, played by Marcello Mastroianni, on the day he is being exiled by the dictatorship. President Sergio Mattarella was among those who mourned his passing on Wednesday. "A protagonist of Italian cinema is gone," Mattarella said while expressing "deepest sympathies" to the Scola family. "The culture and entertainment worlds all over the globe have lost a great master, one who narrated our contemporary history with extraordinary acumen and sensitivity". "The passing of Ettore is the passing of one of the great masters of Italian cinema," said leftwing politician and LGBT activist Nichi Vendola of the Left Ecology and Freedom (SEL) party. "For many of us, it is also the passing of a dear friend and comrade in battle". "His cinema is an example of civic and political commitment," tweeted Turin Mayor Piero Fassino. "We are grateful to him for all he gave and taught us". "Scola lived through over half a century of the history of our country with irony, lucidity, and elegance," said Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso. "He made us... think about our society and its changes". Former French culture minister and prominent Socialist Jack Lang hailed Scola as "a friend of absolute loyalty". "He participated in all the battles of the progressive left in France and Italy," Lang said in a message sent to ANSA. "Conscious of the Italian experience of the damages wrought by (Silvio) Berlusconi-owned television, he warned his French friends against the risks of creating a private broadcaster that would then be entrusted to this destroyer of Italian cinema". Also on Wednesday, Culture Minister Dario Franceschini, former Rome mayor and film director Walter Veltroni, and director Giuseppe Tornatore were among the first to turn up to pay their respects at the funeral parlor at Policlino Hospital, which was closed to the public. A public ceremony to commemorate Scola will be held at the Casa del Cinema in Rome, Thursday at 10:30am local time.
