„All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster’s autobiography.“

— Federico Fellini
On the autobiographical nature of his films, in The Atlantic (December 1965)

„Art is all about craftsmanship.“

— Federico Fellini
Context: I discovered that what's really important for a creator isn't what we vaguely define as inspiration or even what it is we want to say, recall, regret, or rebel against. No, what's important is the way we say it. Art is all about craftsmanship. Others can interpret craftsmanship as style if they wish. Style is what unites memory or recollection, ideology, sentiment, nostalgia, presentiment, to the way we express all that. It's not what we say but how we say it that matters. "Craftsmanship"

„Everyone knows that time is Death, that Death hides in clocks“

— Federico Fellini
Context: Everyone knows that time is Death, that Death hides in clocks. Imposing another time powered by the Clock of the Imagination, however, can refuse his law. Here, freed of the Grim Reaper's scythe, we learn that pain is knowledge and all knowledge pain. "Death"

„What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one...“

— Federico Fellini
Context: What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one... It’s this in-between that I’m calling a province, this frontier country between the tangible world and the intangible one — which is really the realm of the artist. "Every Time We Say Goodbye" in Sight and Sound [London] ( June 1991)

„Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another.“

— Federico Fellini
Context: Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream. As quoted in Rolling Stone no. 421 (1984)

„If I'm a cruel satirist at least I'm not a hyprocrite: I never judge what other people do.“

— Federico Fellini
Context: If I'm a cruel satirist at least I'm not a hyprocrite: I never judge what other people do. Neither a politician nor a priest, I never censor what others do. Neither a philospher nor a psychiatrist, I never bother trying to analyze or resolve my fears and neuroses. "Hypocrisy"

„I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all.“

— Federico Fellini
Context: I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all. If there's one thing that's dangerous for an artist, it's precisely this question of total freedom, waiting for inspiration and the rest of it. "Artistic Freedom"

„Cinema is an old whore, like circus and variety, who knows how to give many kinds of pleasure.“

— Federico Fellini
Context: Cinema is an old whore, like circus and variety, who knows how to give many kinds of pleasure. Besides, you can’t teach old fleas new dogs. As quoted in in The Atlantic (December 1965)
