Liverpool-based artists Alan Dunn and David Jacques have collaborated with the immediate community around Rotunda Community College and various parties from Naples including napoliest on the production of La Dolce Vita, a temporary 80x10ft cinematic artwork across three billboards outside Rotunda. The composition has drawn imagery and narratives – both real and fictionalised - from community contributions around notions of Italophilia and Liverphilia as exemplified by the 1950’s trend of holidaying around the Bay of Naples. Woven across the billboards are conversations and reflections on Diego Maradona, routes across Naples and the set of photographs taken of the Bay Of Naples in 1960 by Peter Forster.
The billboards will be accompanied by an Italian-flavoured event at Rotunda, including an outdoor screening of La Dolce Vita, on Saturday 20th September 2008.
