An Italian “Bucket List”: #49

I’m often asked what I think are the “must-dos” for lovers of Italy, so I’ll be counting down 50 items on an Italian “Bucket List” – please tell me what’s on yours!

49. Watch Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.

 

Unknown-4Where does that elegant “Made in Italy” look come from? You may find the answer in Fellini’s magnificent 1960 film La Dolce Vita, the story of a journalist (played by Marcello Mastroianni, frolicking here with Anita Ekberg) who loses his bearings – and his ideals – in the decadent “sweet life” of Roman high society. You’ll never look at the Trevi Fountain the same way again!
