* DIRECTOR ANTONIONI DIES Italian film director MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI has died. He was 94. The director died peacefully at home in Rome on Monday (31Jul07), according to his wife, actress Enrica Fico. Antonioni was renowned for his 1966 movie Blow-Up, gaining two Oscar nominations for the release. The filmmaker was awarded an honorary Academy Award for his life's work in 1995. He studied economics at the University of Bologna, but came to attention as a film critic when he savagely criticised the Italian comedies of the 1930s. He enrolled at Centro Sperimentale, Italy's national film school and began working as a scriptwriter, releasing his debut film Story of A Love Affair in 1950.
