Federico Fellini: "The Book of Dreams"

In a dreamscape, Federico Fellini stands atop a ladder rocked by a perhaps slightly tipsy woman, who descends amid great bursts of laughter from the bystanders  — Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina, and some of her girlfriends. The title says, “Signor Fellini, shall we get some work done?”  Dreams were very important to Fellini, and after a psychologist encouraged him to record them, he did so assiduously, in sketchbooks with felt-tip pens.
