A Century of Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini was born a hundred years ago. Over a career spanning almost half a century, he has signed more than two dozen films as a director, such as the blockbuster La dolce vita (1960) or La strada (1954) and Amarcord (1973), these two were awarded the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Its name resonates, however, far beyond the Seventh Art. Even today, it is an icon of an Italian fantasy imagination that is recognized on a global scale. In the particular dimension of music, he is distinguished by the unique partnership he maintained with his friend and collaborator Nino Rota, author of the soundtracks that are heard in all films before 1979, the year he died. To mark the anniversary, OML and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura propose to remind us of Fellini through «clips without image» by La strada and Amarcord, with the music of Nino Rota that hides there in the view of the viewer, despite its central importance. There is also the Soirée Concert. There are five movements for piano and orchestra composed at the beginning of the 1960s and which show how Nino Rota has always been true to himself, whether on stage or on movie screens. He is a soloist Benedetto Lupo, whose interpretation of this work, recorded on CD two years ago, was awarded the prestigious Diapason d'Or.
