    Description

    La Dolce Vita (Cineriz, 1959). Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 77.25").
    Artist Giorgio Olivetti rendered one of the most captivating movie poster images ever -- the sultry Anita Ekberg dances her way across this country-of-origin, original release, Italian 4-foglio as a disenchanted Marcello Mastroianni stares blankly out from the shadowy background. Few directors are as revered and imitated as Federico Fellini, a true artist whose style of film-making mixed dreams and gritty reality with a touching sense of humanity. After struggling financially with his early films, La Dolce Vita broke all box office records and garnered world-wide acclaim, marking this as one of many Fellini masterpieces. Filmed mainly at the Cinecitta studios, we follow stars Ekberg and Mastroianni as they escape the paparazzi through the streets of Rome. This rare 4-foglio shows excellent color. Professional restoration has addressed tears and small paper loss along the folds, chips in the borders and slight paper loss on the verso across the top section. A simply gorgeous cinematic inspired image! Fine on Linen.
