Ruggero Mastroianni

Ruggero Mastroianni (7 November 1929 - 9 September 1996) was an Italian film editor; Tony Sloman has called him "arguably, the finest Italian film editor of his generation." Born in Turin, he was the brother of the actor Marcello Mastroianni. He had a notable collaboration with director Federico Fellini, whose films he edited for over twenty years; their work includes Giulietta degli spiriti (1965), Amarcord (1973), and Ginger and Fred (1986). He had a similarly notable collaboration with director Luchino Visconti in films like Le Notti Bianche (1957), Morte a Venezia (1971) and Ludwig (1972). He also edited the 1974 absurdist western comedy Don't Touch The White Woman!. He won 5 David di Donatello Awards and 1 Nastro d'Argento as Best Editor. With his brother, who acted the part of Scipione l'Africano, he acted the part of Scipione l'Asiatico in the film Scipione detto anche l'Africano by Luigi Magni. Ruggero Mastroianni died in Torvaianica, near Rome, in 1996.
