The Fellini Museum, the widespread museum dedicated to the genius of Federico Fellini, has open to the public in Rimini

Fellini Museum: Sismondo Castle

The Fellini Museum opens in Rimini, a widespread museum center of new conception and the largest museum project dedicated to the genius of Federico Fellini. A museum with three spaces: Castel Sismondo, Palazzo del Fulgor and Piazza Malatesta. A space of creativity - included by the Ministry of Culture among the great national projects of cultural heritage - in the sign of Fellini's visionary nature, of cinema, of the relationship with the arts, in permanent dialogue between innovation and tradition.

The Museum opened with a long special weekend: on Thursday 19 August 2021 with a great inaugural show and free-of-charge guided tours. Considering the complexity of its articulation on three sites - Castel Sismondo, Piazza Malatesta and Palazzo del Fulgor - the inauguration of the Museum does not focus on a single event, but on a program of events (exhibitions, concerts, reviews, conferences, shows ) which, starting from 19 August, will continue throughout 2021.

The Fellini Museum does not intend to interpret Fellini's cinema as a work in itself completed or a homage to memory, but to enhance the cultural heritage of one of the most illustrious directors in the history of cinema, who was born in Rimini in 1920, giving life to a composite path of narrations that make the visitor the protagonist of an immersive experience, a 'dialogue' between internal and external spaces in which creativity and imagination can positively contaminate Rimini and its journey in the present and in the future, as a key to access the world where "everything is imagined".

The Fellini Museum includes three key points of Rimini historic center, connecting different realities in a single vocation. The three axes involved are: Castel Sismondo, the fifteenth-century Malatesta fortress to whose project Filippo Brunelleschi contributed; the Palazzo del Fulgor, an eighteenth-century building, where the Fulgor is located on the ground floor, the legendary cinema immortalized in Amarcord and now staged by the three-time Oscar winner Dante Ferretti. Finally, to unite the two buildings, Piazza Malatesta, a large urban area, with green portions, arenas for shows, art installations, an immense veil of water to evoke the ancient moat of the castle and a large circular bench which, like in the final of the film '8½', wants to be a hymn to life, solidarity, and desire to be together.

Piazza Malatesta, like a large square of dreams, embraces the cultural center that has the Fellini Museum at its center, but which also includes the Galli Theater, inaugurated by Giuseppe Verdi and restored in 2018, the PART - Palazzi dell'Arte Rimini, a contemporary art center set up in two fourteenth-century palaces inaugurated in September 2020, and the Sculpture Garden completed just in time for the opening.

From Monday 23 August Castel Sismondo and the wing of Isotta, which hosts the exhibition "The World of Tonino Guerra", are regularly open to the public, as well as Piazza Malatesta, almost entirely set up. The Palazzo del Fulgor - of which during the inaugural weekend visitors had got a vision of the work in progress - is closing in order to complete the last phase of the works.

THE PROJECT

The project is part of a broader action of infrastructural renewal and enhancement of the cultural and architectural heritage of the city and its historic center that is redesigning its image and future.

The Municipality of Rimini has entrusted, through an international tender, to a group of companies led by Lumiére & Co and of which Studio Azzurro is a part, the conception of the entire installation of Castel Sismondo and Palazzo del Fulgor  which is characterized by  an  immersive multimedia installation project with a strong participatory value for the visitor, curated by Marco Bertozzi and Anna Villari.

The Fellini Museum was created thanks to the participation of almost all the producers of Fellini's films and the current owners of the rights: from RTI - Mediaset Group to Titanus, from Pea Films Inc to Cristaldi Film, from Rai Cinema to Istituto Luce / Cinecittà , from Gaumont to Lyric Productions to Compagnia Leone Cinematografica, as well as thanks to the involvement of the main national audiovisual archives: from the Teche Rai to the historical archive of the Istituto Luce, from the Fondation Fellini pour le Cinèma di Sion to the Tonino Guerra association, from the archive Barilla historian to the National Corporate Cinema Archive and to the photographic archive of the Experimental Center of Cinematography Foundation, from the Cineteca di Bologna Foundation to Cinemazero di Pordenone, from Reporters Associati & Archives to the Mimmo Cattarinich Cultural Association to the Maraldi Archive.

All the graphics of the Fellini Museum are created by Studio FM in Milan.

Partners of the project, which received the patronage of Rai, are Visit Romagna and APT Servizi Emilia-Romagna with Hera Servizi Gold sponsor.
