Harried by argumentative screenwriters, importunate actresses, a terse unloving wife, and his brainless giggling girlfriend, he takes refuge in fantasies of childhood and the dream of a perfect, and therefore unattainable, woman, embodied in Claudia cardinale. In 1965 Fellinis health failed as he prepared what would have been his most personal work, the journey. Mastorna, a dreamlike vision of the afterlife, starring Mastroianni. Forced to abandon the project, he fortuitously found an alternative outlet for his fantasies in colour. Technology placed in Fellinis hands the tools to realize the visions that until then existed only in his dreams: I close my eyes, he wrote of his nocturnal imaginings, and the festival starts. His notebooks recording those dreams, lavishly illustrated, became his raw material.

La dolce vita essay (1960; The Sweet Life) was the first of many collaborations with Marcello mastroianni, an actor who came to represent Fellinis alter ego. Inspired by newspaper headlines and some topical scandals, the film comprehensively indicts a rome dominated by foreign movie stars, corrupt journalists, and decadent aristocrats. Condemned by the catholic Church but hailed by the public, la dolce vita contributed the word paparazzo (unscrupulous yellow-press photographer) to the English language and the adjective felliniesque to the lexicon of film critics. He then made his first foray in colour, directing the segment le tentazioni del dottor Antonio (The temptation. Antonio) for the omnibus feature boccaccio 70 (1962).

However, his first critical and commercial success, i vitelloni (1953; Spivs or The young and the passionate exhibited little fantasy. Based on his own adolescence degenerative in Rimini, it faithfully reflects the boredom of provincial life, which drove him to rome. Major works With la strada (1954; The road fellini returned to the world of showmen. It starred Anthony rudolph Oaxaca quinn as Zampanò, a brutish but phoney itinerant "strong man and Masina as the waif who loves him. The film was shot on desolate locations between Viterbo and Abruzzo, mean villages and flinty roads that were intended to reflect the moral aridity of quinns character, throwing into relief the sweet, forgiving nature of Masinas Gelsomina.
