The Fellini Museum opens today, 19 August 2021, in Rimini. It is the new diffused museum complex and the largest exhibition project dedicated to the genius of Federico Fellini with a rich calendar of events and guided tours for the public. The structural design and, in particular, the technical project for the multimedia and immersive installations was developed and realised thanks to the synergic work of Lancia, Aplomb, ETT, Opera Laboratori, Civita Mostre e Musei and Gruppo Maggioli. The Municipality of Rimini entrusted the concept and contents of the exhibition to a group of companies led by Lumiére & Co and including Studio Azzurro.

The museum sites

Given the complexity of its layout, spanning three sites, the inauguration of the Fellini Museum is not concentrated in a single event, but takes the form of a widespread experience according to a programme of initiatives (exhibitions, concerts, reviews, conferences, shows) that continues throughout 2021. Upon completion of the last works, scheduled for the end of October 2021, the experience will be 100 per cent usable. The complex technical and immersive set-up of the Fellini Museum aims to enhance the cultural legacy of one of the most illustrious directors in the history of cinema, creating a composite path of participatory narratives. The vast Fellini museum complex tells its story on three complementary exhibition routes, with cross-references between indoor and outdoor spaces. Castel Sismondo, the 15th-century Malatesta fortress, is developed according to an itinerary that proceeds by evoking fundamental themes in Fellini’s imagination and cinema. Palazzo Valloni, a building of 18th-century origin, where the Fulgor, the legendary cinema featured in Amarcord, is also located, is the place where Fellini’s works, drawings, correspondence and professional exchanges are kept. For part of these, the originals are available and the rest can be accessed through digital repertories. The third and final axis linking the two buildings is Piazza Malatesta, a large urban area redeveloped and transformed into a true Piazza dei Sogni (Square of Dreams) with grassy areas, arenas for performances and artistic installations.
