Fellini Sketches on Display in Italy

A collection of seldom-seen sketches by late Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini has gone on display in the town of Adro.

ANSA, the Italian news agency, said the drawings had once belonged to screenwriter Liliana Betti, an Adro native who worked with Fellini for more than two decades as his personal assistant, then as an assistant director for some of his films.

The exhibition is to run in the Palazzo Bargnani Dandolo until Oct. 19. It is then scheduled to move to the Filodrammatici Theatre in Milan, the news agency said.
