  • Restoration: This new 4K digital restoration is by Cineteca Di Bologna – Laboratorio L’Immagine Ritrovata in collaboration with The Film Foundation. It was carried out starting with the original camera negative – which was shot in Totalscope (2.35:1) on Dupont film stock and scanned at 4K resolution. Some sections of the film showed clear signs of decay. Some frames, particularly at the beginning of each reel, were seriously damaged and irreparably affected by mold; therefore, a lavender print was scanned for those sections. Following scanning, the images were digitally stabilized and cleaned to eliminate signs of age such as spotting, scratches, and visible splices. In order to bring back the original splendor of the film, the digital grading was executed with particular care, using a vintage copy as a reference, as well as a copy restored in the mid-90s for Mediaset – Medusa under the supervision of Vincenzo Verzini. The contribution of Ennio Guarnieri, DP Otello Martelli’s camera assistant, was invaluable at this stage.

Αφιέρωμα Φεντερίκο Φελίνι

Wandering in a privileged enclave of Rome, the handsome Marcello, a gossip-journalist encounters elegant aristocratic women; starving artists; the vulgar neo-rich; glamour girls and “magicians” of the earthly night. He discovers that beneath the skin, of their deceptive grace; lurks hollowness, despair and loneliness—all that forces a friend of his, a tour de force of uncompromising intellect, into tragic demise. With admirable rigour in its structure, this modern psychological portrait of an entire city, defines the culmination of the Felliniesque baroque; as a libertarian directorial adventure from Neorealism to Neoexpressionism. It has indelibly left its mark in our modern world and its cultural heritage; not only with its title or the term “Paparazzi” but also with it’s episodic “anthology scenes”. Such as the one, where Anita Ekberg is bathed at the Fontana di Trevi—an iconic depiction of desire reaching its boiling point—filmed at a night so cold, where Mastroianni had to down a bottle of vodka to stay in character.
