- Discussion before the movie -

"When I was working with Fellini, there was no script, just improvisation. Nothing to do with Sergio Leone's method. With Sergio, there was a script and we had to stick to it. Everything was very specific. With Luchino Visconti, it was different, like theatre."

Guest of honor at the BRIFF, the Signora Cardinale accepted to answer questions from the public during a meeting which already promises an encounter filled with charm and shared emotions.
