Sam Stourdz - ­ Director of the Musée de l'Elysée - is the designer and curator of "Fellini, la Grande Parade", an exhibition that went round the world . It was inaugurated in Paris in 2009, and was then brought to Bologna, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Las Palmas, Moscow and Toronto. Said cities understood how important an exhibition on Fellini could be, also in terms of tourism. Fellini scored a great success, both with his audience and critics, and probably is the most famous film-maker in the world. Fondazione Fellini of Rimini gave its contribution to revealing Fellini’s art to a large international audience on this occasion too, thanks to its rich archive. Moreover, the Fondazione intends to organize a major event in view of the opening of the Fellini Museum and Cinema Fulgor renovation. In  the meantime the Fondazione will present a Fulgor project in view of Federico Fellini’s virtual museum.
