Photos and the City

Slow travel & photography

Just a short ride with the metro and you´re at Fellinis home: la Cinecittà. He actually really lived on these grounds!

Founded in 1937 by Mussolini Cinecittà has been a working studio areal to this day. During our visit a remake of “Ben Hur” was shoot and according to the guide they were expecting the crew from the new Bond movie soon. (I´m sorry but “zero zero sette” doesn´t sound that sexy!)
