After the exhibition “Fellini between dream and reality: the photographic contribution of Rodrigo Pais” the photographic appointments at the Fellini Museum continue. An exhibition itinerary that develops along the walls of the Palazzo del Fulgor headquarters, offering detailed studies and reflections related to the figure and cinema of the Rimini master.

Starting from 10 June and until 4 September, the Fellini Museum hosts the photographic exhibition by Patrizia Mannajuolo “Federico Fellini behind the scenes” in the Palazzo del Fulgor.

102 years after his birth, the great director relives in the shots of Patrizia Mannajuolo from the set of La città delle donne. Usually, when portraying celebrities, one is conditioned in some way by a preconceived idea. Patrizia Mannajuolo in her off-stage photographs, on the other hand, manages to shoot with a free mind and attentive gaze, capturing moments of rare spontaneity and revealing the characters to us as if she were seeing them for the first time. Her eyes focus on details already investigated by many, but with a peculiarvision, showing us the true and genuine Fellini, far from the official nature of public appearances or authorized backstage. In Cinecittà Theater 5 which was the maestro's “home”, Patrizia explores scenography and sets with the discretion and malice of a photojournalist, in a memorable sequence of unexpected and revealing snapshots. The inauguration of the exhibition is held on Friday 10 June (from 9.00 pm to 11.00 pm the entrance to the Palazzo del Fulgor will be free)
