Quartet:
"A 40-minute LP of the soundtrack was released on RCA Victor in 1961 ... The entire project has been ... carefully restored and mastered by Chris Malone from the first-generation master tapes—originally recorded in mono ..."


I take it then that the RCA LP labeled "Living Stereo" was either fake stereo or non-stereo?

The original first-generation source tapes for La Dolce Vita are monaural. Any stereo release over the years—that either sounds like stereo or was marketed as stereo—has used artificial processing to create some sense of space—perhaps convincingly, perhaps not! We didn’t want to do that, preferring to stay true to the source tapes.

Another winner from Quartet, sounding better than ever! I had the album for years on LP, then years on CD - looks like it's finally time for an upgrade.
