AGE’S BIOGRAPHY

Subject writer and screenwriter. He starts working as a journalist before signing his first screenplay: “I due orfanelli” by Mario Mattoli. In 1952 he began to collaborate with Scarpelli forming a partnership that saw them as protagonists of the great Italian comedy of the 60s and 70s. Their scripts provide an incredible variety of emblematic characters of post-war Italy from which the economic miracle and the “boom” years originated. The modifications of language become the key to understanding the world in their works. The best works belong to the comic genre, or to the comedy of manners, where the two give vent to their polemical ideas towards society. The first scripts are for the great Totò. Among the works signed by the couple there are films that have marked an era, such as “I soliti ignoti” (1958) by Mario Monicelli; “Seduced and abandoned” (1964) and “Signore e Signori” (1965), both by Pietro Germi. For Monicelli they wrote “La grande guerra” (1959), “The companions” (1963), “The Brancaleone army” (1966), “Temporale Rosy” (1980). They collaborate with directors of the caliber of Luigi Comencini, Ettore Scola, Dino Risi, Alessandro Blasetti and Nino Manfredi. The couple Age and Scarpelli received three Silver Ribbons and a David di Donatello in 1975 for “Popular Roman”. In 1985 the two separated. Age, the more methodical of the two, begins to collaborate with Lina Wertmuller, then with Dino Risi. Subsequent experiences for cinema and TV were fewer. In 1990 Age publishes a script technique manual entitled “Let’s write a film”. He often holds private scriptwriting courses in Rome. He dies in Rome.
