Michelangelo Antonioni (1912 – 2007), was an Italian film director, screenwriter, editor, and short story writer. Best known for his “trilogy on modernity” —L’Avventura (1960), La Notte (1961), and L’Eclisse (1962). Antonioni ” redefined the concept of narrative cinema” and challenged traditional approaches to storytelling, realism, and drama. These films received awards at BAFTA, Cannes, and a Golden Berlin Bear.  This success allowed him to go abroad and to work on international scale in English: e.g. Blow-Up (1966) in London and Zabriskie Point (1970) in the USA as well as The Passenger (1975).

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
