All of Pasolini's work deals with life in Rome's working class suburbs, but he wouldn't be nearly as popular outside of Italy as Fellini.
And yes, the 1960 Olympics in Rome would be more relevant to the city than Fellini, in my opinion.
The unusual part here is that Rome and Paris both have only one sister city.
The motto for that partnership is "Solo Roma è degna di Parigi, solo Parigi è degna di Roma."
Only Rome is worthy of Paris, only Paris is worthy of Rome!
Federico Fellini didn't just make his home in Rome, he made the city his muse as surely as Woody Allen or Martin Scorsese have with New York. It is impossible to imagine La Dolce Vita being set anywhere other than Rome.
What do you *really* stand to lose if we also accept the name in the native language - other than an opportunity to make yourself look bad with a comment you think is clever?
