Viva Italia! The Passion of Italian Cinema

Overflowing with the sensual pleasures of Rome, this enchanting film could be called ROMA in homage to the realm of Maestro Federico Fellini's cinematic art, he who called Rome "the Internal City" of soul-searching.

Like one of Fellini's heroes, Jep (the world discovers actor Toni Servillo), thinks about how his love of Roman high life and the idea of Beauty shaped his path in life. He's just turned sixty-five, and long ago he published a serious novel, but now he's most known for leading an endless party of socialites, intellectuals and artists. Maybe its not too late to pick up his pen again, and still enjoy the sunset over the Coliseum. Winner of twenty-four international awards, including Best Foreign Film Oscar.
