A remarkable collaboration encompassing the giants of Italian film, composition and classical music.
Conductor Riccardo Chailly and the Filarmonica della Scala take us on a journey through iconic Nino Rota film scores from classic Federico Fellini films, capturing 50s and 60s Italy, featuring brand new recordings of music from La Dolce Vita, Amarcord, 8 1⁄2, The Clowns and Il Casanova.

"It’s plain from the performances here that both conductor and orchestra understand and, indeed, love the music and the man."
"There is nostalgia in every bar. You hear Rota’s Fellini scores, you see the images; you see the images, you hear the music…Fifties chic has its own sound and I love the way that Rota’s catchy principle theme [for La dolce vita] arrives at its lush apotheosis. Chailly and his La Scala players positively salivate over its grand reprise. It’s all in the flavour."
