La Natura Morta de La Dolce Vita



La Natura Morta de La Dolce Vita

On the 100th birthday of Federico Fellini, with celebrations happening all over the world in 2020, the Leonardo da Vinci Society of San Francisco in conjunction with the Consulate General of Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute, and City Lights Booksellers present an evening with Mauro Aprile Zanetti exploring Fellini's La Dolce Vita, a seminal film showcasing a microcosm of modern living.

Sicilian born, San Francisco-based multidisciplinary published author, Mauro Aprile Zanetti will discuss his book on Federico Fellini and Giorgio Morandi La Natura Morta de La Dolce Vita - A Mysterious Morandi in the Matrix of Fellini's Vision (NYC, 2008), originally illustrated by painter Piero Roccasalvo RUB.

More than a half-century after the release of the world renowned and iconic film La Dolce Vita (1960), Zanetti reveals for the very first time in the panorama of international literature on Fellini's filmmaking the poetic presence of a still-life painting (natura morta, vanitas) by 20th-century Italian artist Giorgio Morandi.

With an interdisciplinary approach, Zanetti explores Fellini's enchanted filmmaking to unearth the ultimate art of il Maestro del Cinema's creation.
