I vitelloni is a 1953 Italiancomedy-drama directed by Federico Fellini from a screenplay by Fellini, Ennio Flaiano and Tullio Pinelli.

The film is the story of five young Italian men at crucial turning points in their small town lives. Recognized as a pivotal work in the director’s artistic evolution, the film has distinct autobiographical elements that mirror important societal changes in 1950s Italy. Recipient of both the Venice Film Festival Silver Lion in 1953, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Writing in 1958, the film’s success restored Fellini’s reputation after the commercial failure of The White Sheik (1952).
