Loneliness in two – a strange, ambiguous relationship that links the travelling showman and strongman Zampano (Anthony Quinn) and his helper, simple-minded, honest and naive Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), sold to Zampano by her family. They wander together to perform on village squares: Zampano breaks the chains on his chest and Gelsomina accompanies the shows and collects donations. A wise, beautiful film, a masterpiece! “La strada” has influenced and continues to influence many filmmakers and audiences around the world in an unprecedented way. Innovative at the time of the premiere – Fellini abandoned Italian neo-Realism and stops asking questions about the world order in the social dimension. Using magical realism, symbols and metaphors, he seeks the meaning of life that people give to their existence.

Federico Fellini (1920-1993), Il Maestro, one of the greatest Italian scriptwriters and directors. Initially he was the assistant and co-writer of Roberto Rosselini. He made a significant contribution to the new Italian film school but, despite the recognition he already enjoyed, he chose a separate path. Each of his films was significant and loud. Some - like the Oscar-winning “La strada” – are considered the most influential works of world cinema. From his debut “The Lights of Variety” (1950) to his last painting “The voice of the Moon” (1990), he showed an oneiric world, suspended between the open and the dream, ambiguous, allegorical and full of space.
