Dolce Vita, meaning Sweet Life, is really the perfect term to describe the fervor of the period comprised between the end of the 50's and the beginning of the 60's in Italy. Rome becomes the capital city of hedonism, expressed through exclusive parties, intellectual ferment, art and especially the cinema, not only thanks to Fellini but also by attracting American productions, owing to the reduced costs in comparison to Hollywood. The ghost of World War II has been dispelled, the economy is booming and men and women are bursting with desire for life. The general euphoria is well depicted in a scene from the movie La Dolce Vita by Fellini, in which the actress Anita Ekberg dives into the Trevi Fountain in a buzz of excitement, together with Marcello Mastroianni, who declares his love for her.
The concert program will bring you on a journey through an epoch in which any emotion can be experienced. Joy and desire for adventure are embodied by the protagonists of films that have made history.
