Fellini News Update: Fellini @ 100
January 20, 2020 is the 100th anniversary of Federico Fellini's birth. Numerous film fests, academic investigations and celebrations are occurring around the globe throughout the year. Some of us simply celebrate with a hearty Italian pasta dinner and a viewing of a favorite Fellini film.
Here at the Felliniana Archive in Fort Worth Texas, USA, we are also celebrating the near completion of a many years long process of posting the complete archive on the Felliniana.com website. Several thousand items collected since the 1980's are now posted. The process of scanning, photgraphing and describing these items was challenging. It also allowed me to revisit the depth of the collection. I hope you will enjoy doing so, as well.
I urge you to pay special attention to the Federico Fellini Miscellaneous section in The Collection. This is where hundreds of items end up that are not specific to one of the films. You will find rare books, magazines, music, posters, photos from the 1940's to the present.
Buon compleanno, Maestro Fellini!
