The film Amarcord, which depicts life in Rimini in the 1930s, was always considered to be Fellini’s autobiography as Fellini was born and raised in that town. Even though Fellini claimed differently, he nevertheless confesses that there are certain similarities between this film and his childhood. Through everyday life and festivities, we learn about how it is live and grow up in a small coastal town during Mussolini’s rule.
