is a documentary by Giuseppe Pedersoli which focuses on a specific moment in the career of Federico Fellini, when, at the end of 1958, the great master of cinema went through a complicated professional period. Despite having already won two Oscars, for La strada and Nights of Cabiria, nobody wanted to produce his next project: a story called La Dolce Vita. Only Giuseppe Amato, already producer on masterpieces such as Umberto D., Francesco Giullare di Dio and Don Camillo, understands the extraordinary nature of the subject. A reconstruction halfway between fiction and documentary featuring a lot of exclusive material. Produced by Arietta Cinematografica and Istituto Luce-Cinecittà.

Among the other titles presented by the company in the American film Materna, the feature debut from David Gutnik starring Kate Lyn Sheil (House of Cards) and Jade Eshete (Billions), in which the lives of four women are linked by an accident in the New York metropol.
