One Hundred Years of Fellini (1920 - 2020)
in Fellini's way of "imagining everything"
Federico Fellini was born in Rimini, Italy on January 20, 1920. He was an ingenious Director, who created, through his 27 films, a unique cinematic world of his own, transcending forms and rules. The big screen owes him images of rare beauty, taken from the talent of a charismatic folk poet. He was an Intellectual who put his stamp on the social conscience, always ready to fight for his Art and his Ideas.
