The largest and most innovative museum in the world dedicated to the genius of Federico Fellini and his poetic legacy, as well as his artistic and visual references to the art of all times. This is the International Federico Fellini Museum, a museum that does not intend to interpret Fellini's cinema as a finished work to be paid homage to, but as the key to "everything is imagined", the possibility of linking past and present, classical and contemporary art, capable of giving back everything that cinema has sought to be since its origin and that Fellini's films express in the most complete way: amazement, fantasy, spectacle, fun.
The Museum will be divided into three sections. Sismondo Castle, the 15th century fortress that Filippo Brunelleschi contributed to building; Palazzo Valloni, a recently restored 18th century building, whose ground floor houses the legendary Fulgor cinema immortalised in Amarcord; and the third and last section consisting of a large urban area, a real Piazza dei Sogni (the square of dreams) which, through a path of Fellini's installations, will act not only as a connective tissue but also as a creative 'fil rouge' between these two buildings of extraordinary architectural and symbolic value, to become a visual and interactive experience that characterises the spaces of daily relations for residents and guests.
Thanks to the contribution of large public and private national audiovisual archives and of almost all the producers and rights holders of Fellini's feature films, in the Fellini Museum it will be possible to see films, documentaries, interviews, scripts, scores, costumes and props, as well as the master's drawings and technological solutions designed to involve the senses and the mind.
The project was entrusted to a group of companies led by Lumiére & Co., of which Studio Azzurro is a part. The conception of the entire installation of Castel Sismondo and Palazzo del Fulgor is characterized by an immersive multimedia installation project of strong participatory value for the visitor, often called into question by the narrative solutions devised for the itinerary, curated by Marco Bertozzi and Anna Villari.
All the visual identity and graphics of the Fellini Museum are created by Studio FM in Milan.
Partners of the project, which received the patronage of Rai, are Visit Romagna and APT Servizi Emilia-Romagna with Hera Servizi Gold sponsor.
