Tornabuoni in Paris presents an exhibition of works inspired by La Dolce Vita. The fantastic exhibition runs until 10 January 2018.

Rome of the 1950s and 1960s became a destination which attracted international intellectuals and artists, such as Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly. It became synonymous with Federico Fellini’s 1961 film, La Dolce Vita, a chef-d’oeuvre of Italian cinema filmed in the outskirts of the Italian capital.

The exhibition features 40 museum-quality works including Alberto Burri, Carla Accardi and Piero Dorazio – created between the 1950s and 1960s, and others made in the years following La Dolce Vita, by artists such as Jannis Kounellis and Mario Ceroli, directly inspired by their experiences of the Post-War Roman art scene.
