FELLINI CENTENARY YEAR

  Risultato immagine per rimini fellini

Another major anniversary this year! Federico Fellini, author of the landmark film “La Dolce Vita” was born in Rimini on the 20th January 1920. His home town has prepared a programme of events in his honour. These include the exhibition “Fellini 100. Immortal Genius” at the Sismondo Castle, earmarked to become the venue of a permanent museum due to open in December 2020, as well as guided tours of places connected with the artist's memory, including his childhood home and the Grand Hotel, where he often stayed in Suite 316.

Not to be missed: a visit to the lavishly decorated Liberty-style Cinema Fulgor, running a regular programme after five years intensive work to restore it to its former glory.

In Rome, where Fellini settled in 1939 and where he filmed most of his celebrated works, the tourist council has prepared a map with 17 major sites connected with the maestro. The itinerary starts with the Trevi Fountain, scene of Anita Ekberg's famous immersion, and wends on through Via Veneto (focus of the 1960s “Dolce Vita” nightlife), the Park of the Aqueducts, Piazza del Popolo and Piazza San Pietro (background of many “La Dolce Vita” scenes), the Baths of Caracalla and Termini Station (“The Nights of Cabiria”), Trinita dei Monti and Castel Sant'Angelo (“the White Sheik”), St. John Lateran, the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella and the Foro Italico (“Roma”) and others, ending at the historic studios of Cinecittą, where his masterpieces were produced.
