Hamilton House Museum, Clifton, NJ

2003 marks the 10-year anniversary of the death of Federico Fellini, and it also marks the 50th anniversary of the making of a film that represents a milestone in the history of cinema: I Vitelloni (The Young and the Passionate) directed by Federico Fellini, with a screenplay by Fellini and Ennio Flaiano. On March 24th at 7:30 p.m., an exhibit featuring photographs from the film set will open at the Hamilton House Museum, at 971 Valley Rd. in Clifton. The exhibit "Fellini & Rossi, Il Sesto Vitellone" was curated by the Cineteca of Bologna, Italy, and based on the book Fellini & Rossi: Il Sesto Vitellone by Moraldo Rossi and Tati Sanguineti. The exhibit gives voice to Moraldo Rossi, one of Fellini's closest assistants and one of the real vitelloni of the group, and takes the spectator on a walk through the sets of Fellini's films, uncovering unknown and unforgettable facts and faces. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Italian, the Dean's Office of the College of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Montclair State University, and KAIROS Italy Theater, directed by Laura Caparrotti.

Exhibit hours are: 24 March, 7-9:00 p.m., for the Opening and Reception; 25-28 March, 2-4 p.m.; 31 March, 7-9:00 p.m.; 1-4 April, 2-4 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
