Cinecitta. It's an active film studio which includes a small museum and a building dedicated to the great Federico Fellini. Cinecitta has -- since its 1937 opening -- been the primary shooting site for films by such directors as Fellini Martin Scorsese Sergio Leone Terry Gilliam William Wyler Bernardo Bertolucci just to name a few. But I will herewith dispense with words and provides some of the pictures I took during our visit in the belief that each is worth 1,000 words.
