80 years of cinema and there’s still more story to tell. Throughout the entire 20th century, Cinecittà never stopped creating dreams for the country: from the initial design by Gino Peressutti whose construction was inaugurated in 1937 to the American productions that filled the capital with new splendour in the post-war years and the blockbuster titles that would reinvent the history of cinema, from Mervyn Le Roy’s Quo Vadis? to William Wyler’s Ben Hur.
Many of the founding pages of the universal history of film have been written on its sets; pages that have exported the most vibrant face of Rome to the world, its unmistakable Dolce Vita.In the new millennium, the stages of Cinecittà Studios continue to host important productions, like, Gangs of New York by Martin Scorsese, Le avventure acquatiche di Steve Zissou by Wes Anderson, La passione di Cristo by Mel Gibson and recently Catch 22 by George Clooney, Grant Heslov and Ellen Kuras and Six Underground by Michael Bay.
In a lot of over 400,000 square metres, the stages are framed by tree-lined streets and charming and versatile corners, A beating heart of artists and professionals, just a few metro stops from the centre of Rome, that continues to attract film professionals from all over the world, drawn by logistical ease and exceptional quality of service.
