The life of Federico Fellini, the internationally renowned Italian director known for his early avant-garde style, has captivated the attention of dozens of published biographers, each attempting to give unique factual accounts and analysis of the Italian master's life. This new book offers a unique insight into this iconic director and scriptwriter. Regarded as one of the most visionary and fertile figures of Italian cinema in the post-war era, he was able to transform the realities of his life into the surrealism of his art. Though originally part of the neorealist school, the eccentricity of Fellini's characterisations and his absurdism in comedy separated him from renowned contemporaries like Vittorio De Sica or Roberto Rossellini.In 1953, Fellini's initial masterpiece came out 'I Vitelloni'. The road to international acclaim was now paved and his talent was confirmed with the glorious 'La Dolce Vita' in 1959, side by side with actor Marcello Mastroianni. The Oscar came with '8 1/2' and his career continued in full swing over the years until his final work, 'La Voce della Luna'. This fascinating book is a fitting tribute to Fellini's work and contains original movie posters, rare on-set and behind- the-scenes pictures, along with a complete filmography.
