Biography #2

Michelangelo Antonioni (born September 29, 1912 in Ferrara, Italy) is an Italian film director, writer and painter.

He graduated in economics at Bologna University, he reached Rome in 1940 where he attended specifical studies at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Cinecitta. Here he met some of the artists with whom he cooperated in the next years; among them Roberto Rossellini.

He described himself as a Marxist intellectual, but some authors advance some doubts about his effective adherence to that ideology. In contrast with his contemporary Federico Fellini, whose stories generally dealt with the lives of the working class and the misfits and outcasts of society, Antonioni's most notable films revolved around the elite and the urban bourgeois.
