Production designer Dante Ferretti followed up – and arguably outdid – his stunning work on City of Women with Fellini’s next feature. With its story of a cruise ship sailing out from Naples to scatter the ashes of a famed opera singer in the weeks before WWI, the film was shot entirely in Cinecittà studios and is suffused with a dream-like air of melancholy.
