15 x Marcello Mastroianni

One of the major programmes at Il Cinema Ritrovato this year is 'Portrait of Marcello Matroianni'. There are actors who, throughout their careers and their roles, shape for themselves a multi-faceted, indefinable personality, while others are faithful to their character from their first to their last film. And then, there’s Marcello Mastroianni. A one-of-a-kind performer, who was able to display a wealth of qualities and features that are hard to combine: a great actor and an icon, embodying at once elegance, empathy, sensitivity and light-hearted disenchantment. In line with this programme, EFSP presents fifteen postcards of Mastroianni's films throughout his long career.
