91 years old and he committed suicide?That was very bad.

Rest In Peace Sir…

Quite a few people get into their 90’s and want to go, could he have been ill?

I think it may something like that Yodlaf. He might of had an illness or was depressed. Such a damn shame either way.

I can’t say I think his SWs are memorable, but it’s indeed a sad week for the italian cinema all the same… RIP
