Italian actor/playwright Dario Fo has died at the age of 90.
The star passed away of a respiratory disease in Milan on Wednesday (13Oct16).
Fo, who was known for his political satires, began his career in the 1950s and went on to write over 80 plays. He was best known for Accidental Death of an Anarchist and his one-man show Mistero Buffo (Comic Mystery), which jokingly criticised politics and religion. After its release, a spokesperson for the Vatican called it "the most blasphemous show in the history of television."
In 1997, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
In addition to his writing work, Fo was also a theatre director and he worked on several TV and movie productions, including La voz humana, Hohn der Angst, and It Happened in Rome. He also acted in projects including The Betrothed, It Happened in Rome, and Francesco, lu santo jullare.
Fo frequently collaborated with his actress wife Franca Rame, who died in 2013. The couple married in 1954 and formed the Dario Fo-Franca Rame Theatre Company in 1958.
