 NOVEMBER 19TH, 2015 THE MÉTIERS D'ART 2015/16 SHOW AT CINECITTÀ THE MÉTIERS D'ART 2015/16 SHOW AT CINECITTÀ Cinecittà, the city of cinema – built in just eighteen months prior to its grand inauguration in 1937 – houses twenty-one studios over nearly sixty hectares, with five giant film sets and a special pool for ocean scenes and naval battles. Three hundred films were shot there in its first six years, but the studios really took off in the 1950s when Mervyn LeRoy filmed his epic "Quo Vadis" there. Cinecittà became known as Hollywood on the Tiber as its low running costs drew major American film productions in increasing numbers: 150 epics were shot there over the following fifteen years, including "Ben Hur", "Spartacus", and "Cleopatra". Federico Fellini once said his favourite place in the whole world was Cinecittà's Studio 5, where he shot a series of major works from "La Dolce Vita" and "8 1/2" to "Casanova" and "Ginger and Fred", including "Intervista", a homage to the studios. Cinecittà was also home to such masterpieces as Vittorio De Sica's "Bicycle Thief", William Wyler's "Roman Holiday", and Luchino Visconti's "The Leopard". The sets are still used for many of the world's leading film productions to this day, from Anthony Minghella's "English Patient" to Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" and Martin Scorcese's "Gangs of New York". Cinecittà has been chosen to host Karl Lagerfeld's Métiers d'Art 2015/16 show on December 1st.
