CINECITTA’ WORLD AMUSEMENT AND MOVIE PARK: LA DOLCE VITA
Named after the film studios on Rome’s Via Tuscolana that have seen numerous award-winning Italian and international productions and was closely associated with federico Fellini Cinecittà World is situated – in Castel Romano on the southern outskirs of the capital opened for a preview ahead of its formal launch on July 24.
The 250 million euro theme park is the first of its kind in Italy and is expected to draw up to 1.5 million visitors in 2015/2017 with an estimated turnover of 55 million euros.
It contains 20 attractions designed by multiple Oscar-winning Italian production designer Dante Ferretti and there are also four themed restaurants, eight film sets and four theatres.
The ambient music is by the prolific Italian composer Ennio Morricone, winner of the Honorary Academy Award for career achievement in 2007 and to whom the theme park’s Westerns section is dedicated.
In more recent times, this reputation has been cemented by films like Martin Scorsese’s 19th century epic of battles between US Nativists and Irish immigrants, Gangs of New York.
Mel Gibson also chose Cinecittà to film part of The Passion of the Christ and Terry Gilliam came here to re-create the fantasy world for The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
After the Second World War, when the Studios re-opened, their world-class facilities were a magnet for Italian directors.
From the early 1950s they were joined by many American filmmakers, attracted by the Studios’ reputation for creative and technical talent and Italy’s low production costs.
The next 15 years saw cinema history made here: from Cleopatra and The Quiet American by Joseph L. Mankiewicz to Helen of Troy by Robert Wise, War and Peace by King Vidor and Roman Holiday by William Wyler, starring Audrey Hepburn in her Ocar-winning performance as an incognito princess escorted for a day in Rome by journalist Gregory Peck.
A total of 48 films partially or wholly shot here have received Academy Awards, with 83 nominations overall. Many were collected by Fellini, who shot virtually all his productions on the lot, including La Dolce Vita, Satyricon and Amarcord.
Other renowned Italian directors like Michelangelo Antonioni, Luchino Visconti, Ettore Scola, Franco Zeffirelli, Pier Paolo Pasoliniçand Vittorio De Sica also filmed here, alongside Sergio Leone who came to Cinecittà to make spaghetti westerns like For a Few Dollars More and Once Upon a Time in the West.Hey Mom for your little kids draw and color HARF our funny mascot
Facilities and equipment were updated in the 1980s, along with the creation of a new Cinecittà Digital centre.
Television shows and commercials entered alongside film production and then in the 1990s, the operation was turned from a public institution into a private company owned by eight partners (Cinecittà Holding, Aurelio De Laurentiis, Vittorio Merloni, Diego della Valle, Vittorio Cecchi Gori, Robert Haggiag, EfiBanca and the Istituto Luce).
Cinecittà currently boasts four production centres, more than 30 sound stages – including the famous Teatro 5, Europe’s largest, so beloved by Fellini – an outdoor tank of almost 70,000 sq feet, a 25-acre back lot, carpentry and set production departments, a digital centre, post production facilities, film processing workshops, edit suites, 280 dressing rooms/offices, 21 make-up rooms, 82 prop warehouses the list is almost endless.
A cult American director now living in Rome and using the Studios, Abel Ferrara, recently told ANSA: “The history of the cinema is there at Cinecittà, you’d have to be a mummy not to feel those ghosts of the past. “This is a place where they make great films and they respect the filmmaker”.
