L'Avventura ("The Adventure"), directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, is a 1960 Italian film, crafted with co-writers Elio Bartolini and Tonino Guerra. The film is about the disappearance of a young woman (Lea Massari) during a Mediterranean boating trip, and the subsequent search by her lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and her best friend (Monica Vitti). It was filmed on the Aeolian Islands and Sicily in 1959, noted for its unusual pacing and character.

The film was awarded by the Jury Prize at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival and is the first film of a trilogy by Antonioni, followed by La Notte (1961) and L'Eclisse (1962). The story begins on Anna (Lea Massari) who meets her friend Claudia (Monica Vitti) at her father's villa on the outskirts of Rome before leaving on a yachting cruise on the Mediterranean. They drive to Isola Tiberina near the Pons Fabricius to meet Anna's boyfriend, Sandro (Gabriele Ferzetti). Claudia waiing downstairs, Anna and Sandro make love in his house and after a few moments Sandro drives the two women to the coast where they join two wealthy couples and set sail south along the coast. Journalist Bosley Crowther of The New York Times called the film a "weird adventure" and praised its cinematography and performances.

The film appeared on the list of critics Sight & Sound's top ten greatest films ever made, voted second in 1962, seventh in 1982, and was ranked #40 in The 100 Best Films in Empire Magazine of World Cinema in 2010.
