BIOGRAPHY OF FEDERICO FELLINI

Film director. His father, Urbano, was from Emilia, while his mother was a native of Rome. He has a brother, Riccardo, born in 1921 and a sister, Maddalena. His childhood is shrouded in a veil of mystery and legend: from the time of his escape from home at the age of seven to reach the famous clown Pierino, to his joining a company of variety artists, and an infinity of other suggestive episodes between reality and fantasy. After the final exams, in the summer of 1938, he moved to the capital. He began his career as a journalist by publishing drawings and elzevirini between the comic and the sentimental in the newspaper “Marc’Aurelio” and writing skits for the radio and for the comedian Macario. In 1943 he met and married Giulietta Masina. When the allies entered Rome, he opened a sales shop for his caricatures, and it was so that Roberto Rossellini had the opportunity to meet him and to request his collaboration for the screenplay of “Rome, open city”. He also wrote the screenplay for “Europa ’51” again for Rossellini, and for many other directors, such as Pietro Germi (“In the name of the law” and “The journey of hope”) and Lattuada, with whom he directed “Luci del variety” in 1950, bringing back to the screen the period of his youth, when he was accompanied by a group of variety artists. He made his directorial debut in 1952 with “Lo sceicco bianco”, presented at the Venice Film Festival the same year. As expected, the film was a total failure by critics and audiences. Despite this, Fellini scheduled his second film “I vitelloni”, which the following year won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. The film was a great success and the young director was even overwhelmed by offers; but as he had ignored the harsh criticism of the first film, he also ignored the praise of the second and set about preparing his new film “La strada” in 1954, the wonderful tale between the rude Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) and the sweet Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), with which he won a first Oscar for best foreign film in 1956 (the second he won in 1957 with “The nights of Cabiria” and a third in 1963 with “Otto e mezzo”). In 1955 he shot “Il bidone” with the American actor Broderick Crawford and in 1956 “The nights of Cabiria”, presented in 1957, which tells the story of the life of a prostitute, set in the squalid outskirts of Rome, masterfully interpreted by Giulietta Masina . But it was in 1960 that the director received the most coveted recognition in the world with the film “La dolce vita”. In 1963 it was the turn of “Otto e mezzo”, played by Marcello Mastroianni in which he is said to have brought back the character of himself on the screen. The title indicated that this was the eighth and a half films that the great director had created. It is necessary to include the episode “The temptations of Doctor Antonio”, inserted in the film “Boccaccio ’70” to reach the total of nine films. In 1965 it was the turn of “Juliet of the spirits” which was followed by an episode entitled “Toby Dammit” in the film “Tre passi nel delirio”, “Fellini-Satyricon” in 1969, “The clowns”, a documentary film made for Italian television in 1970, “Roma” (1972), a fantastic and passionate homage by the director to the much loved Eternal City. In 1973 he dedicated to childhood memories, and to the city of Rimini, one of his masterpieces, “Amarcord”, which in Rimini means “I remember”. The film earned him his fourth Oscar. In 1976 he directed a funereal film entitled “Il Casanova di Federico Fellini”. In 1979 he returned to work for TV with “Prova d’orchestra”, a very stimulating work from a political point of view, and in some way a forerunner of the crisis of the nineties. In 1980 Fellini directed “La città delle donne” and in 1983 “E la nave va!” In 1985, with “Ginger and Fred”, he put the world of commercial TV to a halt. After “Interview” (1987), he directed his latest film, “The Voice of the Moon”, full of
