In a dreamscape, Federico Fellini stands atop a ladder rocked by a perhaps slightly tipsy woman, who descends amid great bursts of laughter from the bystanders Fellinis wife, Giulietta Masina, and some of her girlfriends. The title says, Signor Fellini, shall we get some work done? Dreams were very important to Fellini, and after a psychologist encouraged him to record them, he did so assiduously, in sketchbooks with felt-tip pens.
