Elisabetta - Turin
I went there with my students to visit the studios; they had the opportunity to discover the wonderful world of the cinema, as many of them didn't know the great work behind a movie, love and heart work together.

I love direction, I would really like to learn this job and... to direct my own short film. I visited the exhibition many times and, every time I see them, I get astonished by the elegance and mastery how each detail is represented. I immediately felt at home, thanks to the staff supporting the visitors. Cinecittà is a magic and attractive world!
Riccardo - Ancona
I often visit Cinecittà with my friends, and everytime we go there It seems to be the first time, it is really surreal, it seems to be in another dimension. We love Cinecittà because it hosts very interesting meetings, and it is an occasion to spend some amusing time in the world of the art.
