Marcello Mastroianni was one of the best known and appreciated Italian actors abroad in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, especially owing to the films in which he co-starred with Sophia Loren and the leading roles in Federico Fellini’s movies. One of the most versatile actors in Italian cinema, he was one of the "monstres sacrés" of Italian-style comedy together with Alberto Sordi, Ugo Tognazzi, Walter Chiari, Vittorio Gassman and Nino Manfredi and at the same time perfectly capable of coping with drama roles. Of proverbial elegance, his characters are a reference point for brands celebrating the Italian sartorial tradition. The itinerary winds through renowned artisans who made suits, shirts, shoes and accessories for him and for major foreign actors stopping in Rome, offering visitors the privilege to experience the atmosphere of the time again.
