Rome, May 13 - An Italian bank robber dubbed 'the
machine-gun soloist' because he kept his gun in his violin case
died in Milan Monday.
Luciano Lutring, 75, carried out a string of bank robberies
in the 1960 and '70s and became a hero to some because of his
daring and glamorous lifestyle.
He was arrested in Paris in 1965 and served 12 years of a
22-year-sentence, becoming an acclaimed painter and
corresponding with future Italian president Sandro Pertini
before France pardoned him.
The pardon was confirmed by Italian president Giovanni Leone
in 1977, allowing Lutring to return to his native Milan and
carry on painting and writing.
Alain Delon played him in a film based on his autobiography,
'Lo Zingaro' (The Gypsy).
