Federico Fellini (1920-1993) is one of the greatest and the most internationally acclaimed Italian filmmakers of the 20th century. Fellini won four Academy Awards for best foreign-language movie and several prizes at various film festivals, including Cannes and Venice. Among his greatest achievements are La Strada (1954); The Nights of Cabiria (1957), La Dolce Vita (1959), 8½ (1963), and Amarcord (1974).
The materials in the exhibition will be on loan from the Fellini collection at the Lilly Library of Indiana University, Bloomington, as well as from private collections. They comprise original shooting scripts containing annotations and drawings by Federico Fellini, which reveal how the acclaimed director envisioned characters, scenes, and even how he perceived himself.
