Federico Fellini (1920-1993) was an Italian filmmaker and screenwriter. His style has been described as combining fantasy and baroque images with gritty, working-class sensibilities. His career spanned over 50 years and he is most well-known internationally for such films as La Dolce Vita (1960) and Amarcord (1973). In terms of his great influence, two examples can be readily seen: The term paparazzi ("a brash photojournalist") comes from the character Paparazzo in La Dolce Vita and "Felliniesque" has come to describe cinema or television that recalls Fellini's aforementioned style.
