Fellini Exhibition in Poznań

The Maestro Fellini exhibition at Poznań's Studio Słodownia offers a rare view of caricatures and sketches by the great Italian film director Federico Fellini (1920-1993). The more than 300 exhibits, many of which predate Fellini's illustrious film career, are a godsend for Fellini fans.

There are dozens of facsimiles of drawings and caricatures on display as well as annotated scripts, costumes, press cuttings, posters, and even set photos from some of his most famous films, including La Dolce Vita, Amarcord, La Strada, 8 1/2, Roma and Casanova. The entire creative process, from the first tentative sketch to the last camera movement, is laid out in full view.

Fellini never really gave up drawing. He used to storyboard the individual scenes of the scripts he wrote, sketching the characters with the expressive hand of a trained caricaturist. He would then seek out off-beat amateur actors and extras to fit. His films are instantly recognizable for their grotesque, humorous and satirical worldview.

The exhibits are on loan from the Fondation Fellini pour le Cinema in Sion, Switzerland, which has more than 8,000 objects which once belonged to the artist in its possession.

Poznań, Studio Słodownia, Stary Browar, 42 Półwiejska St., until Feb. 22
