Boccaccio ’70 premiere
Rome Film Festival

The Cineteca Nazionale and Dolce&Gabbana joined forces

to restore the collective masterwork Boccaccio ’70. And on

November 9th at Roma Film Festival was presented worldwide

Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio, an episode by Federico Fellini.

 

 

The film, which began as an idea of screenwriter Cesare Zavattini is inspired

by the writings of Italian Renaissance author and poet Giovani Boccaccio. It

investigates the effects of the sexual revolution in Italy of the 60’s and

contemplates the dangers of moralism and censorship.‘Boccaccio ‘70

is comprised of four episodes; ‘La Riffa’, starring Sophia Loren and

directed by De Sica, ‘Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio’ with Peppino

De Filippo and Anita Ekberg, by Federico Fellini, ‘Renzo e Luciana’ by

Mario Monicelli, ‘Il Lavoro’ by Luchino Visconti featuring Romy Schneider.

Dolce&Gabbana is creatively intertwined with the masterpieces of Italian

cinema and has already demonstrated its dedication by restoring Federico

Fellini’s‘Satyricon’ last year. It’s a rewarding relationship that is a labour of

love for the two designers as the explained in the press release: “We like to

tell stories with our clothes, that’s probably why we feel this bound with

cinema, especially the Italian one, which is able to portray Italy and the

Italian way of doing things in a particularly poetic way. By restoring a movie

like ‘Boccaccio ’70’, directed by four directors we have always looked at with

admiration, we feel we are contributing to their vision and protecting the

beauty of their work, preventing them to deteriorate and fade with

aging. This cinema represents the excellence of Italy, which we should

all protect and be proud of promoting around the world.”
