Today with the word "paparazzo" we mean those kind of tabloid photographers who hunt celebs to shoot pictures during their intimate or private moments. The word paparazzo became known and it was "launched" by the Fellini's movie "La dolce vita" shot in Rome in 1960. In fact the name of one of the tabloid photographers of the movie was Paparazzo (paparazzi is the plural form) and since then this word commonly indicates in many languages that kind of profession. The character was played by the italian actor Walter Santesso.
