(Magenta, Italy-AP) January 12, 2007 - Film producer Carlo Ponti has been buried in the small town in northern Italy where he was born.

Ponti's wife, Sophia Loren, led mourners at the funeral. About 200 residents stood outside the church in silence during the Mass.

Ponti died Tuesday at the age of 94. He was buried in the family tomb. Afterward, the cemetery was opened to the public and dozens of people paid their respects.

Loren waved briefly as she left the church with her two sons on each side. Italian designer Giorgio Armani, a friend of Loren's, also attended.
