Venice Fest To Bow Freshly Restored Copy Of Federico Fellini’s ‘Amarcord’

ROME — The Venice Film Festival will pay homage to Federico Fellini with a special world premiere screening of a freshly restored copy of “Amarcord” in September, 40 years after the Italian master’s reminiscence of his native “Rimini” won the foreign-language film Oscar.

The announcement was made by Italy’s Cineteca di Bologna, the prominent film archives known globally as a prime film preservation entity. It handled the restoration, sponsored by Italian fashion e-tailer Yoox Group in collaboration with Warner Bros. and Italy’s Cristaldi Film, which produced the 1973 pic, the title of which means “I remember” in the local dialect.

Fellini’s ode to his youth and satirical depiction of small-town Italy during 1930s fascism is considered his most personal film. Co-written with poet and scribe Tonino Guerra, and shot at Rome’s Cinecittà Studios, it is set to Nina Rota’s nostalgic score.

Cineteca di Bologna topper Gianluca Farinelli noted that “Amarcord” is the last of four pics Fellini won Oscars for, and “in some way marks the start of the final period in his career.”

“I also believe this film speaks a lot about Italy to an international audience,” Farinelli added.

The 72nd edition of the Venice fest will run September 2-12.
