La dolce vita

Federico Fellini, 1960

A Summer Abroad: Cinema italiano

Most of us won't be sunning on the Amalfi coast or dining near the Trevi Fountain this summer, but this series helps you imagine a splendid Italian holiday. Made by Italian filmmakers and/or filmed in Italy, the selection of classics and new releases features such outstanding directors as Fellini, Visconti, and De Sica and spectacular scenery from Rome, Venice, and the Italian countryside.<br><br><strong>Ticket Package</strong><br>Save when you buy 10 tickets to use at any indoor<a href="http://www.wexarts.org/fv/index.php?seriesid=257"><em>Cinema italiano</em></a>screening.<br>$60 general public<br>$40 members, students, and senior citizens

La dolce vita bridges Fellini's early, neorealist work and his later, more ambiguous films, and takes its title from a familiar Italian phrase for "the good (literally, 'sweet') life."

Marcello Mastroianni stars as a tabloid reporter who seeks to find more meaning in his life than Rome's glamorous social scene can provide. Although seemingly filled with scenes at Rome's recognizable landmarks, the film was mostly shot within the city's famed Cinecittà studios. Also with Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimée. (174 mins., 35mm)
