Remembering Federico Fellini

Jun 30, 2017 374

Federico Fellini is undoubtedly one of the greatest Italian artists characterizing the Italian cinema industry. His masterpieces are marked by a unique mixture of oneiric and autobiographical traits within a framework characterized by fantasy and a deep sense of anxiety. Fellini was an excellent Italian director able to grasp the quintessence of Italian culture through the typicalprotagonist of his works: a young boor, always very joyful on the outside but with a great sense of sadness on the inside.

Since he was young, Fellini showed a great talent in visual art, working as caricaturist for Fulgor Cinema in his city of origin, Rimini. He then moved to Rome where he became part of the cinema world and where he met Giulietta Masina, the love of his life. In 1954, Fellini was awarded his first Oscar Prize with the film “La Strada”, very sweet and poetical. After 4 years, the outstanding Italian director receives his second Oscar with “Le Notti di Cabiria” and in 1959 Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” – his most famous masterpiece – receives Cannes Golden Palm.
