Michelangelo Antonioni's funeral held in Ferrara, northern Italy

German director Wim Wenders joined other friends and family mourning the late Italian movie director Michelangelo Antonioni at his funeral Thursday in his northern hometown of Ferrara.

Fans and film lovers filled the piazza outside the church where the funeral was held to honor the celebrated filmmaker, who died Monday at the age of 94. Antonioni, along with Federico Fellini, helped turn postwar Italian cinema toward a personal cinema exploring imagination. His films included such classics as "L'Avventura," "Blow-Up" and "Zabriskie Point."

Antonioni will be buried next to his parents in the Certosa cemetery.
