The Legendary Film Studio

ISBN: 9780847859207 (HB - E)

This fascinating volume presents the history of Cinecitta from its beginnings in 1937 until today, highlighting the Italian studio's most important productions and famous actors. Known as "Hollywood on the Tiber," in its glamorous heyday the studio was producing about 350 films a year, including American classics such as Ben-Hur and Cleopatra. Cinecitta became most closely associated with Federico Fellini, who spent four decades making his films there, including La Dolce Vita and Satyricon. Still in operation today, the studio's recent productions include Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York, and the Bond film Spectre. Featuring an impressive selection of photos that reveal the extravagant sets and costumes used in the studio's epic productions, this book provides insight into a lost era of filmmaking and is essential reading for cinephiles.
