Catholic and Pagan Heart of Fellini’s Eternal Rome

I have hung up my heart―both Catholic and Pagan―as an ex-voto between the obelisk of the Trinità and the column of the Conception.

Andrea Sperelli in Gabriele D’Annunzio’s “The Child of Pleasure”
Felllini’s “Nights of Cabiria” (1957)
Fellini’s 8½ (1963)
Anita Ekberg as a modern-day Venus in Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”(1960)
Fellini’s 8½ (1963)
A boy resembling Caravaggio’s “Bacchus” in “Fellini-Satyricon” (1969)
Dionysian feast in “Fellini-Satyricon”
Fellini’s “Roma” (1972)
