COMPETITION / Win a Copy of 'La Dolce Vita'

WITH FEDERICO Fellini's death on 31 October, the film world lost one of its best-loved sons. Tributes poured in from directors around the world, while in Rome 75,000 people filed past his coffin as it lay in state at Cinecitta studios. President Oscar Luigi Scalfaro, who once attacked Fellini's work for its 'scenes of perversion, prostitution and orgiastic eroticism', led mourners at the requiem. The film Scalfaro had been referring to was La Dolce Vita, Fellini's triumphant 1959 satire on Roman decadence and unquestionably his most famous work. La Dolce Vita (15, Electric, pounds 19.99) is now available on video in a special-edition box set. We have 15 sets to give away, together with 15 Dolce Vita T-shirts and 15 copies of John Baxter's new biography, Fellini (Fourth Estate, pounds 20), to the first 15 readers to correctly answer the following question:

Which Roman street, reconstructed in the studio, provides the focus for La Dolce Vita?
