FAR OUT – Born in 1920, Federico Fellini is recognised as one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. From  to La Dolce Vita, beautiful Italian locations play a central part in his films. Here are some essential locations featured in his movies, perfect for any Fellini fan to visit. 

Trevi Fountain 

A must-see location for Fellini fans is the Trevi Fountain, the largest Baroque-style fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The landmark has been featured in classics such as Roman Holiday and Three Coins in the Fountain. However, one of the most recognisable scenes to feature the fountain is from La Dolce Vita

Piazza del Popolo

Piazza del Popolo features in La Dolce Vita. It is here that Marcello and Maddalena pick up a prostitute before taking her back to the latter’s home to make love. 

Baths of Caracalla

Fellini frequently included baths in his films, such as 8½. However, present in both La Dolce Vita and Le notte di Cabiria is the Baths of Caracalla. They were the city’s second-largest public baths, likely to have been built between AD 212 and 217. 

Although the baths stopped being used in the 530s, they can still be visited today and attract plenty of tourists every year. They were even used as a gymnastics venue during the 1960 Summer Olympics and sometimes host live music.
