Italy: Rome: Funeral Of Actor Marcello Mastroianni - 1996

312 ratings | 137589 views
Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni has been laid to rest in Rome Sunday. In a simple civic ceremony at Rome's Campidoglio (city hall) family members, celebrities and fans remembered their friend and hero - a man whose acting career spanned nearly fifty years. With the song from his movie "eight-and-a-half" playing in the background - friends spoke of their memories of the star. After the ceremony his coffin was taken across Rome and placed in the family vault. Mastroianni died in Paris Thursday from pancreatic cancer aged 72. There was music and applause - perfectly fitting for Italy's acting great Marcello Mastroianni to make his finale. As his coffin was carried into Rome's Campidoglio the huge crowd broke into a thunderous applause - thanks for the man who had entertained them since his cinematic debut in 1947. And in the background - the theme music from his movie "eight-and-a-half". Rome's mayor Francesco Rutelli accompanied Mastroianni's grieving family into the ceremony. His widow Flora Carabella and daughter Barbara took their seats with another of Italy's greatest acting exports - Sofia Loren. Loren and Mastroianni had performed in 12 films together - they had also been close friends. Many of Italy's most renowned actors and directors had come to say their last farewell - including actress Monica Vitti. Mastroianni's long-time seamstress simply summarised his importance in Italian cinema. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "You will always be in my heart and in the heart of Italian cinema. Thank you for everything." SUPER-CAPTION: Angela Insimani, Mastroianni's seamstress. As the music played and memories of Marcello flooded back - Sofia Loren broke down in tears as she held the hand of his widow Flora. She says they made one of the great cinematic partnerships. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There was a kind of chemistry between us that could not be compared with anybody else, with anyone else. Q/ Do you have a last message for Marcello? "Ciao Marcello, I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart, I know that." SUPER-CAPTION: Sofia Loren, actress. After the ceremony - Mastroianni's body was transported across Rome to the Verrano cemetery where the family vault is. There he will now rest - but always remembered through the 160 films that he starred in. More often than not, he was the quintessential "Latin lover" - most famous for his role in Fellini's film "La Dolce Vita".

I love the fact that the put the finale music from 8½ by Nino Rota. I remember reading an interview that Marcello himself told that it (8½) was the best thing he ever did. Such a legend!

Christine Richard ....De plus,personne en Italie 🇮🇹 n’a avisé Flora,la demie sœur de Chiara Mastroianni,Barbara,Catherine Deneuve et sa fille Chiara du moment où auraient lieux ces funérailles!.Heureusement que la France 🇫🇷 avait d’abord pensée à célébrer des funérailles pour célébrer le départ de Marcello Mastroianni!..

Christine Richard .......Étant décédé en France 🇫🇷 et ne pouvant assister à ses funérailles en Italie 🇮🇹 parce qu’elle tournait un film; il y eût donc des funérailles à l’église St-Sulpice en France pour Marcello Mastroianni!.Avant même que le corps de Marcello ne retourne en Italie pour y être inhumé!..Cordiales salutations!!.

Anyone else realise that the journalists surrounding Loren looked like the paparazzo in La Dolce Vita? The exact scene from the one in the film...

es la musica de la banda sonora de "La Dolce Vita"..el solo escuchar esa musica me puso la piel de gallina. Que belleza! me parecio que la musica fue excelente para la ceremonia de despedida ya que esta llena de momentos alegres y tristes...altos y bajos..dulce y agria como la misma vida.
the best movie ever made, ( for my opinion ), and in the funeral of Marcello Mastroianni, gives a lot of emotions... i saw this only now, and i think that Marcello, is the only man who could ask this privilege... R.I.P. ❤
