The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures has announced a partnership with Italy’s Istituto Luce – Cinecittà under which the state film entity will become a “founding supporter” of the museum as part of a five-year agreement that will involve a series of annual events celebrating Italian cinema.

The Italian cinema series will kick off with a centennial tribute to late great Italian auteur Federico Fellini. Besides Los Angeles the Fellini tribute will be traveling to other major museums and film institutes around the world. The long delayed $388-million Renzo Piano-designed museum at Fairfax Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles is expected to open sometime in 2020, which is the year of the centennial of Fellini’s birth. He died in 1993.
