They are materials remained unpublished for decades, that narrate with wonderful images the set, the director Federico Fellini and the protagonist Marcello Mastroianni at work or in pause, the actresses engaged in the film, the crew, the guests visiting the film set, the extras and extras troupe.

The exhibit, realized by Centro Cinema Città di Cesena and Emilia-Romagna Region, is curated by Antonio Maraldi, responsible for the Centro Cinema, and is part of the official programme of the Italian National Committee for the Celebration of the Centenary of Fellini's birth - ‘Fellini 100’.

In Bratislava, the exhibit is on display in an ‘open-air gallery’: large-format images in 50 citylights in the streets of the city centre, a new and original setting which makes it available to a very large audience, to all those who, after the ‘quarantine period’, are gradually going back to enjoying the city.
