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.
Where 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!
