The Years of La Dolce Vita
30 April – 29 June 2014
The 1950s and ’60s represent a golden era in Italy’s cinematic history, when such directors as Antonioni, Pasolini and Fellini produced some of their most famous movies, and glamorous Hollywood stars flocked to Rome. This exhibition draws on the vast archive of Marcello Geppetti – one of the inspirations for the character of Paparazzo in La Dolce Vita (1960) – as well as number of photographs taken on the set of the film. Candid and evocative, these images not only capture a period of remarkable creativity, but also changed the face of photojournalism forever.
