2014 : SPRING from 10/5 to 17/5 and from 25/10 to 1/11
The film director, Federico Fellini, is considered one of the greatest names in the history of world cinema.
On the occasion of the 20thanniversary of his death (on October 31st 1993) and to mark 40 years since the release of his Oscar-winning picture “Amarcord”, we are dedicating a week to this great director, with a cycle tour, a special meal, a film-screening, and a chance to look at his famous books.
We will explore Rimini together by bike, the birthplace of Federico Fellini on January 20th 1920. We will visit the village of San Giuliano, with its characteristic Fellini murals, the cemetery where he is buried with his wife, Giulietta Masini, the Fulgor Cinema, the Corso d’Augusto and Piazza Cavour. We will also visit the places where he lived in his youth (and which were later depicted in his films), the Grand Hotel, and the square dedicated to the director.
We will also enjoy a themed evening at a restaurant: “At table with Fellini”. The menu will consist of some of the director’s favourite foods: “piadina” bread, “maltagliati” pasta with beans, tagliatelle with pea sauce, fish soup, and “zuppa inglese” (trifle).
In addition, you will be treated to a showing of the film “Amarcord” on the big screen, and will be given the chance to see the famous “Libro dei Sogni” (Book of Dreams) with Fellini’s collected drawings.

Tuesday October 29th – Showing of the film “Amarcord” on the big screen
Wednesday October 30th – “At table with Fellini”, with the director’s favourite dishes
