As La Dolce Vita (1960) prepares to celebrate its fiftieth birthday, La Dolce Vita, l’Album revisits a cinematic masterpiece by offering this facsimile of the albums from the film shoot, a unique and fascinating document. Close to 1,000 original photos are gathered in these five albums. Some of them were used for promotional purposes while others illustrated reports and interviews, but the majority of the pictures have never been published before. In addition to the albums, an essay by Sam Stourdzé and an iconography taken mainly from the press at the time reveals Federico Fellini's sources of inspiration. Among other anecdotes, we discover that a series of photos published in the review Tempo captured Anita Ekberg taking a nocturnal dip in the Trevi Fountain… two years before La Dolce Vita!
More than 1000 photographs, including unpublished photos on set during the shooting of La Dolce Vita and the DVD of the film included
