Cinecittà Shows Off
“Cinecittà Shows Off” (Cinecittà si Mostra) is a cultural initiative aiming to showcase the historical and architectural heritage of the Studios.
Started in 2011, the initiative gave the opportunity to open up the Fabbrica dei Sogni to the public and to visit highly evocative movie sets and exhibition itineraries, both for adults and for children who are fascinated by the world of cinema.
The history and appeal of Cinecittà make every visit special. The tour allows the visitors to explore the exhibitions on stage and the permanents sets built for films or historical series by the Cinecittà construction department, world famous for its technical and artistic skills.
Cinecittà also offers many activities and workshops for children at Cinebimbicittà, where they can learn about the magical world of cinema and explore the history of Cinecittà.
