It is since the dawn of cinema that the relationship between literature and cinema exists. Despite the profound transformations taking place in production and consumption, cinema continues to draw inspiration from literature. The increasingly important role that new technologies have in the production of spectacular effects has not eliminated the need to have subjects of proven effectiveness: the recourse to works of both classical and contemporary literature. One of the film careers that has crossed paths on many occasions with the major Italian and foreign fiction, contemporary and classic, through the interpretation of some of the most famous characters of those books is Marcello Mastroianni’s, great actor on the Italian theatrical and cinema scene.
