MUSIC AND CINEMA : On July 27 the Federico Cesi Musica Urbis Festival opens with an evening dedicated to FELLINI

On Monday 27 July , at 8.30 pm in the splendid location of the Nymphaeum of Villa Fabri in Trevi (PG),
the 13th edition of the Federico Cesi Musica Urbis Festival will be inaugurated. The protagonists are cinema and
great music. The event, inspired by Fellini’s Book of Dreams, will offer an unusual cross-section of the great director, read not only in his artistic dimension, but also in the human and earthly dimension of man with his paradoxes and desires. 100 years after his birth, Fellini shows the human dimension, sometimes problematic, of a being who knew how to sublimate the most hidden fears through cinematographic art: the Book of Dreams is a dream diary where Federico Fellini, from the early 1960s untilin August 1990, he notes and illustrates through drawings and captions his own daydreams, bizarre and nightmares, outlining characters and figures according to his light, easygoing and mischievous style. The dramaturgical path of the show Felini 100: the Oniric Imaginary …, underlines the director Nicola Napolitano, stages the story of a brilliant artist who, perpetually struggling with his own creativity, traversed by fear, by the anguish of failure, from continuous feelings of inadequacy, of bewilderment, he embarks on a colorful salvific journey into the abyss of the unconscious, where he witnesses the
projection of images that reveal the creative dimension of childhood, doubts about the construction of one’s own identity, the desire to escape and escape, the exaltation of sex combined with the conflicting vision of women as a projection of male ghosts, the creative crisis, the feeling of decay and death. Nino Rota, with his unforgettable melodies, was able to splendidly interpret the complex and fascinating world of Federico Fellini, always oscillating between dream and reality: Francesco Proietti  clarinet, Federico Ferrari guitar, Francesco Moretti accordion will perform the most beautiful and famous melodies of Rota for the elaboration of Stefano Palamidessi.
