ROME -- Famed Italian screenwriting legend Tullio Pinelli, best known for co-writing Federico Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" and "8 1/2" died over the weekend in Rome. He was 100.

Even though Pinelli worked with other Italian masters such as Roberto Rossellini and Mario Monicelli, it was his work with Fellini that netted him four Oscar nominations. Pinelli wrote more than a dozen of Fellini's films, starting with the master's first and last films.
