    La Dolce Vita (Cineriz, 1959). Italian 4 - Fogli (52" X 75") Giorgio Olivetti Artwork.
    Along with posters from Roman Holiday, foglios from Federico Fellini's classic La Dolce Vita make one want to hop the next flight to the Eternal City. Although it was created nearly sixty years ago, the film has been continuously rated as one of cinema's top ten pictures, and was the late film critic Roger Ebert's favorite movie, claiming he'd seen it more than twenty five times. Few directors are as revered and imitated as Fellini, a genuine master whose style of filmmaking 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, making this one of many Fellini masterpieces. Filmed mainly at the Cinecitta studios, we follow star Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni as they escape the paparazzi through the streets of Rome. It is believed that Fellini coined the term "paparazzo" during this film, as the word means "sparrow" in Italian, and the reporters and photographers frenetically chasing and hopping around after celebrities reminded him of the birds. The Italian 4-fogli format is simply breathtaking, an undeniable showpiece. In rich, bold color, Ekberg dances breezily across this country of origin poster, as Mastroianni emotes a sense of profound weariness. Compliments of artist Giorgio Olivetti, the imagery is even more powerful in this grand format. Mounted on linen, the poster has had minimal restoration. Signs of handling include pinholes in the borders, fold wear with small tears, tears and small chips in the borders, stains in Ekberg's upper body, Mastroianni's face and in the bottom border, a tear in the left border into the background, a tear in the bottom left and top right background, a tear in the bottom border into the credits and a reattached bottom left corner. Fine+ on Linen.
