Three exhibitions complement the screening: from Oct. 30 - Jan. 30, "Labirinto Fellini," at the MACRO Testaccio, La Pelanda, will show a selection of Fellini's photographs, clips and drawings as well as a magical installation that takes audiences behind Fellini's sets. From Oct. 28 - Dec, 20, the Senate's Library will house images and articles from "1960. The world in the years of La dolce Vita." And through Nov. 14, "La Dolce Vita: 1950-1960. Stars and Celebrities in the Italian Fifties" showcases 100 never-seen photographs and 100 illustrated magazines from the 1950s, which combined, trace the era's characters in the Italian imagination. Lastly, a retrospective of the films that preceded and inspired La Dolce Vita-- "The crazy nights of La Dolce Vita"--will screen at the the Centro Sperimentaledi Cinematografia - Cineteca Nazionale, plus Antoello Sarno's documentary look behind the scenes on set and at the film's Rome and Milan premieres.
