Fellini Museum Opening

The Fellini Museum / Rimini / Film & TV

La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8½, Roma—these are just a few of the films that won Federico Fellini his very own word in the Oxford English Dictionary: “Felliniesque.” It means ‘fantastic, bizarre; lavish, extravagant.” Fellini was born in 1920 in Rimini, the coastal Italian town where beaches and nightlife converge. To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Fellini’s birth, the town has inaugurated the Fellini Museum, which opened in mid August. Drawings, costumes, and sculptures galore—combined with screenings, of course—are housed between Castel Sismondo and an adjacent 18th-century palazzo. To move from one building to the other, one need only walk across a beautiful piazza. —E.C.
