Ugo Pirro

23 April 1920 to 18 January 2008

As the writer of back-to-back winners of the Best Foreign Film Oscar, Pirro’s contribution to The Garden of the Finzi-Continis (1970) and Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970) remain his best known work outside his native Italy. He also enjoyed enduring collaborations with directors Elio Petri and Carlo Lizzani.
