The film “The Great Beauty” provides the most beautiful images of the Eternal City since the best years of Academy Award-winning director Federico Fellini. The film opens with scenes on the Janiculum, Rome’s highest hill which features an imposing statue of the general and founding father Giuseppe Garibaldi.
On the statue’s pedestal is engraved “Rome or death”. This is, in short, the summary of the film. A 65-year-old king of the social scene looks back with nostalgia and melancholy on his past while continuing to immerse himself in Rome’s superficial party scene.
The film’s locations are breathtaking! Scenes were shot in the Roman Forum and the mysterious Palace of the Knights of Malta on the Aventine Hill. The camera captures extravagant parties throughout the Eternal City: on a rooftop along posh Via Veneto, in a luxurious apartment with a terrace offering a dazzling view of the Coliseum and where, in a true Fellini touch, a flock of flamingo’s has landed.
You make this the Great Beauty Tour exclusive and comfortable in an electric golf cart. With this form of transport you get anywhere, even in places closed to motorized traffic.
