A documentary made by Gianfranco Mingozzi, who was Fellini’s assistant on La dolce vita, and based on an idea by Tullio Kezich, Noi che abbiamo fatto La dolce vita revisits the making of the masterpiece that earned its director a Palme d'or at the Cannes Festival in 1960. Made to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the film’s release, this documentary begins with the comment by Marcello Mastroianni: «Having been part of the La dolce vita is like doing your military service together, it creates bonds.» Combining extracts from the film and archival material, Noi che abbiamo fatto La dolce vita is mainly comprised of interviews with the writers, starting with Fellini himself and the scriptwriter Tullio Pinelli. Then there are the actors Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, as well as Magali Noël and a number of technicians who are still alive. Noi che abbiamo fatto La dolce vita is a homage to the cinema and those who make it.
