A tribute to the "Dolce Vita"! After looking at Chinese trials and tribulations last year, Menton's Fête du Citron, or Lemon Festival, is focusing on Cinecittà. Dreams and nostalgia are at the heart of this colourful new event, during which the town's streets are brightened up by familiar yellow-orange shades. A wonderful flashback to a time when the orange and lemon decorations were inspired by Italian cinema of the '50s and '60s - the likes of Visconti, Fellini and Sergio Leone.
