From 30 October to 25 November, the EESC will be exhibiting a selection of original documents belonging to the Fellini Foundation. The foundation has the world's largest archive of artefacts such as letters, photos, contracts, costumes etc. relating to "il maestro" (9 000 original documents).
The exhibition is designed as a journey themed around a circus – a venue where art and artists co-exist, and an environment that fired Federico Fellini's imagination throughout his career.
It was in Teatro 5 at the very heart of Cinecittà, starting in the early 1960s, that Fellini gave new life to this universe of fantasy and poetry. Fellini paid homage to the world of show business in a number of his masterpieces, including La Strada, I Clowns, and 8½.
