Federico Fellini: Italian of the Week

Jun 25, 2015 1053

Federico Fellini was born on January 20, 1920, in Rimini, Italy. Growing up he was interested in art, cartoons, and producing puppet shows. He unsuccessfully attempted to draw and sell caricatures to tourists in Rimini. When he was 18, Federico moved to Rome to study law, but dropped out shortly after and began to work for local newspapers instead.
