Today marks the birth date of Giulietta Masina, aka, Mrs. Federico Fellini. They met in 1942 on the set of a radio show scripted by Fellini. Apart from her own acting career, perhaps her greatest and most challenging role was to be one of the essential ingredients in the making of Federico Fellini’s extraordinary success. Despite his well documented dalliances with other women, Fellini the artist was clearly most fascinated with Giulietta, his wife of fifty years. All things considered, it’s really quite a miracle their union produced seven films.
