In the enchanting Sala Grande of Caffè Poliziano in Montepulciano, the film director Federico Fellini used to enjoy sitting in the little lounge number two (the first on the left in the photo)
In August 1992, Fellini came, with his wife Giulietta Masina, to the Caffè as a special guest: he was to open the “I disegnatori de Il Grifo” exhibition of splendid original comic-strip drawings by Milo Manara, Danijel Zezelj, and Andrea Pazienza, as well as his own. Il Grifo
is a historic magazine which has published the works of the finest comic-strip artists.
