  • Visitor Information

Images of Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor capture the glamour of the golden era of Italian cinema in a major exhibition at London's Estorick Collection this summer. The Years of La Dolce Vita displays images by photographer Marcello Geppetti and film cameraman Arturo Zavattini revealing a behind-the-scenes insight into Italian cinema and the rise of the celebrity culture during the 1950s and 1960s, predominantly during the era of films by Michelangelo Antonioni (best known for 'Blowup', a 1966 drama set in Swinging London) and Federico Fellini (whose masterpieces include 'La Strada', 'La Dolce Vita', 'Roma', 'Amarcord', '8 and a half', and 'Ginger and Fred'), and of the Roman Cinecitta studios, the gateway to Italy's Hollywood.

About Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art

You'll find a spectacular collection of paintings and sculpture by 20th century Italian artists at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, with a core of Futurist works by Balla, Boccioni, Carra, Russolo and Severini. The collection, housed here since 1994, also includes figurative art created between 1890 and 1950 by artists such as Modigliani, Marino Marini, Giorgio Morandi and Giorgio de Chirico.
