Gulf News - - The Views -

1993 - Di­rec­tor Fed­erico Fellini, 73, adored by the world film com­mu­nity and revered as a leg­end by his coun­try­men, died in Rome af­ter two weeks in a coma. “A great light has gone out and now we are all in the dark,” said Ital­ian ac­tress Sophia Loren, who like Fellini is one of the sym­bols of the Ital­ian film world. Fellini, whose name be­came a trade­mark for film­mak­ing that blurred fan­tasy with re­al­ity un­til they be­came in­dis­tin­guish­able, died of car­diac ar­rest.
