In Federico Fellini’s lauded Italian film La Dolce Vita, restless reporter Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) drifts through life in Rome. While Marcello contends with the overdose taken by his girlfriend, Emma (Yvonne Furneaux), he also pursues heiress Maddalena (Anouk Aimée) and movie star Sylvia (Anita Ekberg), embracing a carefree approach to living. Despite his hedonistic attitude, Marcello does have moments of quiet reflection, resulting in an intriguing cinematic character study.
Carbonara (Italian: [karboˈnaːra]) is an Italian pasta dish from Rome (La dolce vita) made with egg, hard cheese, guanciale (or pancetta), and black pepper. The dish arrived at its modern form, with its current name, in the middle of the 20th century.
