Cool. Italian Style

The Guardian highlights a exhibition this Summer in London:

‘The Years of La Dolce Vita’  explores one of the most fertile periods in contemporary Italian cinema and the simultaneous explosion of celebrity culture. The 80 photographs, on view from 30 April to 29 June , capture the dolce vita (literally ‘sweet life’) enjoyed by Italian film stars and Hollywood ‘royalty’ working in Rome during the 1960s.
