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.
After the long break, the summer light will continue to shine brightly for a whole month, beginning on 10 September, in the form of the paintings brought together for the exhibition Made in Italy - the colours of Dario Brevi. This exhibition, one of the events marking Italy's presidency of the European Council, will provide an opportunity to get to know one of international contemporary art and design's most highly-regarded figures, whose approach is both innovative and original, while exemplifying the age-old knowledge of the greatest Italian tradition.
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) presents the EESC European Award for Excellent Design and Sustainability in cooperation with the LifeCare Initiative.
As part of the EESC's food waste initiative, one of the "Wind of Change" projects supported by the Committee's president, Mr Malosse, the EESC is hosting this photo exhibition.
The European Economic and Social Committee will be welcoming four European writers from Greece, Belgium and Bulgaria with two points in common: their passion for travelling and a strong interest in culture, arts and social change.
After each reading the writers will be glad to answer all your questions and, weather permitting, the literary lunches will take place from 12.30 until 2 p.m. on the terrace of the Jacques Delors building, where you are invited to enjoy a lunch.
