A richly illustrated book about one of the most iconic studios in film history. This fascinating volume presents the history of Cinecittà from its beginnings in 1937 until today, highlighting the Italian studio's most important productions and famous actors. Known as "Hollywood on the Tiber," in its glamorous heyday the studio was producing about 350 films a year, including American classics such as Ben-Hur and Cleopatra. Cinecittà became most closely associated with Federico Fellini, who spent four decades making his films there, including La Dolce Vita and Satyricon. Still in operation today, the studio's recent productions include Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York, and the Bond film Spectre. Featuring an impressive selection of photos that reveal the extravagant sets and costumes used in the studio's epic productions, this book provides insight into a lost era of filmmaking and is essential reading for cinephiles.

In film imagery, urban spaces show up not only as spatial settings of a story, but also as projected ideas and forms that aim to recreate and capture the spirit of cultures, societies and epochs. Some cinematic cities have even managed to transcend fiction to become part of modern collective memory. Can we imagine a futuristic city not inspired at least remotely by Fritz Lang’s Metropolis? In the same way, ancient Babylon, Troy and Rome can hardly be shaped in popular imagination without conscious or subconscious references to the striking visions of Griffiths’ Intolerance, Petersen’s Troy and Scott’s Gladiator, to mention only a few influential examples. Imagining Ancient Cities in Film explores for the first time in scholarship film representations of cities of the Ancient World from early cinema to the 21st century. The volume analyzes the different choices made by filmmakers, art designers and screen writers to recreate ancient urban spaces as more or less convincing settings of mythical and historical events. In looking behind and beyond intended archaeological accuracy, symbolic fantasy, primitivism, exoticism and Hollywood-esque monumentality, this volume pays particular attention to the depiction of cities as faces of ancient civilizations, but also as containers of moral ideas and cultural fashions deeply rooted in the contemporary zeitgeist and in continuously revisited traditions.

Una novela que, a través de una historia de amor, nos transporta a los grandes rodajes cinematográficos en la colorida y bulliciosa Roma de los años 40 y 50. Roma, 2017. Un periodista experto en cine llega a la capital italiana para escribir un reportaje sobre el cierre de la mítica Cinecittà, el lugar donde Fellini y De Sica rodaron algunas de sus obras maestras. Allí conoce a Gino, un anciano que ha trabajado toda su vida en los estudios y que le empieza a contar sus recuerdos del turbulento rodaje de Adiós a las armas. Roma, 1957. La acción retrocede a los primeros días del rodaje, cuando John Huston deja en la estacada al todopoderoso y tiránico productor David O. Selznick. Mientras el director Charles Vidor viaja desde Nueva York para hacerse cargo de la película, Jennifer Jones ve en el filme la última oportunidad de relanzar su carrera y Rock Hudson vive un apasionado romance con un joven italianocuando sale del plató. Mientras tanto, el joven Gino -el mismo que seis décadas más tarde narrará su historia al periodista- se enamora de una de las chicas del departamento de vestuario. Así, el lector vivirá al mismo tiempo las peripecias de las estrellas de Hollywood que se han instalado en Roma para el rodaje y el día a día de los trabajadores de a pie, el verdadero alma de Cinecittà.
