Cinecittà in Rome, Italy

Cinecittà was the largest dream factory in Europe for some time after World War II and the second largest in the world after Hollywood. Since 1937, more than 3,000 films have been shot in Cinecittà and in its film studios, many of these films were nominated for the Oscar or have won the prize. Colossal movies like Quo Vadis, Ben Hur, Cleopatra and Fellini‘s masterpieces, starting with La Dolce Vita, were shot here. Cinecittà was also the production site of many Italo Western by directors such as Sergio Leone or Sergio Corbucci. In the 2000s, Cinecittà was amongst others the location for Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ and Roberto Benigni’s Pinocchio.

Studio 5 of Cinecittà was Fellini’s favorite place of work where he also lived during the production of his movies. In fact, Cinecittà was Federico Fellini! Then as now, Studio 5 is the largest of its kind and is currently used for the television series The new Pope by Paolo Sorrentino with Jude Law and John Malkovich.

Ideal for shots in the open is the oversized Green Screen in front of a huge outdoor theater stage with a water basin that could be flooded for scenes on the water. Replicas of Roman houses and streets, as in Pompeii at that time, or rebuilt Roman temples and triumphal arches in polyester are now increasingly used as backdrops for television productions.

Daily guided tours through the film sets and studios take the visitors back to the time of great Italian and international movies. The dream factory is located on the outskirts of Rome and can be reached by metro (Linea A) from the city center in just 30 minutes.

Die Cinecittà war nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg für einige Zeit die grösste Traumfabrik in Europa und nach Hollywood die zweitgrösste der Welt. Seit 1937 wurden in der Cinecittà und in seinen Filmstudios mehr als 3.000 Filme produziert. Viele dieser Filme erhielten eine Oscar Nominierung oder haben den Preis gewonnen. Hier entstanden kolossale Filme wie Quo Vadis, Ben Hur, Cleopatra und angefangen mit La Dolce Vita, Fellini’s Meisterwerke. Cinecittà war auch die Produktionsstätte vieler Italo Western von Regisseuren wie Sergio Leone oder Sergio Corbucci. In den 2000er Jahren war die Cinecittà unter anderem der Ort für Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, Mel Gibson‘s The Passion of Christ und Roberto Benigni‘s Pinocchio.

Das Studio 5 von Cinecittà war Fellinis Lieblingsarbeitsplatz an dem er während seiner Dreharbeiten auch wohnte. Die Cinecittà war zu jener Zeit Federico Fellini! Damals wie heute ist das Studio 5 das grösste seiner Art und wird gegenwärtig für die Fernsehserie Der neue Papst von Paolo Sorrentino mit Jude Law und John Malkovich verwendet.

Fellini‘s masterpieces, starting with La Dolce Vita, were shot in Cinecittà.

Ideal für Aufnahmen im Freien ist der übergrosse Green Screen vor einer riesigen Freilichtbühne mit einem Becken welches man für Szenen auf dem Wasser auch Fluten könnte. Repliken römischer Häuser und Strassen, wie damals in Pompeji, oder der Nachbau römischer Tempel und Triumphbögen aus Polyester werden heute zunehmend als Kulissen für Fernsehproduktionen verwendet.

Tägliche Führungen durch die Filmsets und Studios führen die Besucher zurück in die Zeit grosser italienischer und internationaler Filmkunst. Die Traumfabrik Cinecittà befindet sich am Stadtrand von Rom und ist mit der U-Bahn (Linea A) vom Stadtzentrum in nur 30 Minuten erreichbar.
