This conference will (re)assess the legacy of late Italian film master Federico Fellini in the centenary of his birth (1920-2020). A complex and sometimes controversial auteur whose career spanned the second half of the twentieth century, Fellini is still a central part of the Italian cultural imagery. Possibly one of the most celebrated filmmakers of all time, Fellini, who passed away in 1993, is still the object of ongoing debates and critical scrutiny, as shown by the variety of perspectives reflected in the conference presentations, which range in topics from his literary and pictorial influences to his stance on gender, race, and politics.
