Most widely held works by Anita Ekberg
Federico Fellini's La dolce vita( Visual )

17 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A third-rate newspaperman who pursues a shabby career of scandal mongering, takes an odyssey into the decadent so-called "sweet-life" of the dissolute denizens of high society in modern Rome
War and peace by Leo Tolstoy( Visual )

12 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in English and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and Peace is a commendable attempt to boil down Tolstoy's long, difficult novel into 208 minutes' screen time. In recreating the the social and personal upheavals attending Napoleon's 1812 invasion of Russia, $6 million was shelled out by coproducers Carlo Ponti, Dino de Laurentiis and Paramount Pictures. Some of the panoramic battle sequences are so expertly handled by second-unit director Mario Soldati that they appear to be Technicolor-and-Vistavision newsreel footage of the actual events. Still, the film falters dramatically, principally because of a lumpy script and King Vidor's surprisingly lustreless direction. In addition, the casting is wildly consistent: for example, while Audrey Hepburn is flawless as Natasha, Henry Fonda is far too "Yankeefied" as the introspective Pierre. Proving too long and unwieldy for most audiences, War and Peace died at the box office; far more successful was the epic, scrupulously faithful 1968 version, filmed in the Soviet Union
La dolce vita by Federico Fellini( Visual )

208 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcello is a young playboy and jaded journalist who spends his days between celebrities and rich people, seeking ephemeral joy in parties and sex. When a famous film star comes to Rome, he does everything he can to meet her, and when he does, he is totally charmed by her. Famous for coining the word 'paparazzo' after one of its characters, this is one of Fellini's best films and made its title synonymous with the exuberant and decandent lifestyle of an era
I clowns by Federico Fellini( Visual )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fellini's fascination with the circus and the surreal come to a head in one of his final masterpieces, The Clowns. The film reflects Fellini's childhood obsession with clowns and begins with a young boy watching a circus set up from his bedroom window. Though comical and referred to as a 'docu-comedy', this film explores deeper human conditions such as authority, poverty, humility and arrogance

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, the film rocketed Federico Fellini to international mainstream success, ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom.

Fellini : the Sixties by Manoah Bowman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fellini: The Sixties is a stunning photographic journey through the director's most iconic classics: La Dolce Vita, 81/2, Juliet of the Spirits, and Fellini Satyricon. Carefully selected imagery from the Independent Visions photographic archive, many published here for the first time, illuminate these films as they have never been seen before, and reveal fascinating details of the director's working style and ebullient personality. With more than 150 photographs struck from original negatives, these images spring to life from the page with the depth and quality of the films themselves. Complemented with insightful essays from contemporary writers, Fellini: The Sixties is a true testament to the man and his work, a remarkable compendium of the legendary filmmaker's greatest achievements"--Jacket
