Come join the Central Rappahannock Regional Library as we present La Strada, the first film in the An Italian Master: Federico Fellini film series at the Headquarters Library on Monday, March 22nd at 7:00 pm.
The bubbly, waiflike Gelsomina (Guilietta Masina) is a simpleton sold to the gruff, bullying circus strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) as a servant and assistant. Treated no better than an animal, Gelsomina nonetheless falls in love with the brute Zampanò. When they join a small circus they meet Il Matto (Richard Basehart), a clown who enchants Gelsomina and relentlessly taunts Zampanò, whose inability to control his hatred of Il Matto (literally, "the Fool") leads to their expulsion from the circus and eventually to the film's fateful conclusion.
