Dolce&Gabbana have funded the restoration of Fellini’s Satyricon, a movie released in 1969 by Fellini.
Italy’s Cineteca Nazionale decided it was time for a restoration but didn’t have the funds. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided to fund the restoration of the movie, entrusted to photography director Giuseppe Rotunno, who took care of the movie’s photography 43 years ago. The result will debut at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 13 at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.
“Satyricon is not a movie for everyone, but it’s also true that what you don’t understand immediately is often refused and rejected” Stefano Gabbana said.
