Film & Music Performance
Notte Italiana
25 & November 27, 2021

In 1952 began a collaboration between Federico Fellini and Nino Rota that would span decades, ending only with the composer’s death in 1978. In fact, ‘collaboration’ is a mild word for the powerful bond, what can only be described as true artistic communion, that formed between the two creators.

Symphonic Concert
Orchestre de Paris / Daniel Harding
