Fellini "Dall'Italia alla luna"

25 March - 25 July 2010

The exhibition, curated by Sam Stourdzé, analyzes the birth and development of Fellini’s myth, foregoing a chronological approach in favor of a depiction of the filmmaker through his obsessions, his inspirations, his dream-like imagery: the scenes, locations and backstage of his movies, the iconographic hyper-production of contemporary mass culture.

From its initial step at the Jeu de Paume in Paris – where it had been exhibited until last January, obtaining a wide success, under the title Fellini, la Grande Parade – the show opens in Bologna with a different title and two brand new sections: The Magic of out-of-“sink”, curated by Tatti Sanguineti and Roberto Chiesi, and focused on ‘Fellini and voice”, with a host of video and audio materials – and an array of original movie posters from a private collection, now acquired by Cineteca di Bologna.

Pop Culture, Fellini at Work, City of Women and Biographical Invention
are the show’s main thematic sections, characterized by an engaging multimedia impact. They include over 200 photographs, 50 autograph drawings, 30 audio-video positions, of which 12 projections, hundreds of documents, magazine spreads, posters, billboards, slides, covers.

A special focus is put on the dialectical relation between moving and static images: an array of screens and projectors offer excerpts and montages of Fellini’s works, first takes, unreleased scenes, as well as films and newsreels from that period.

Parallel to the MAMbo show, the film exhibition curated by Cineteca di Bologna will screen films written and directed by Fellini, as well as movies by other filmmakers inspired by his work.
