Motion text

That this House celebrates the life and work of Federico Fellini on the centenary of his birth on 20 January 1920; recognises that Fellini remains one of the pre-eminent auteurs of Italian, European and World cinema; notes that his inimitable and immediately recognisable style influences the visual arts today as much as it did with the release of his directorial debut, I Vitelloni, in 1953; advises that hon. and Rt. hon. Members to watch La Dolce Vita, an iconic love letter to his adopted city of Rome; and notes that Fellini’s directorial breadth went further to include surrealist and semi-autobiographical masterpieces including 8½ and Roma which unpicked the social, religious and sexual mores of the era in which Italy redefined itself as an open and vibrant democracy at the heart of European culture.
