Iconic settings and scenery, and a wealth of art and culture have been among the main charms for international productions in Italy.

Filming in Italy

Shooting in Italy is always a great experience, locations are amazing, crews are extremely skilled and as per technical equipment you can access to any of the modern and updated technologies on the market for vehicles, cameras, lights and grip. 

In Cinecittà, in Rome, we have access to one of the most important studio facility in Europe, including a very updated VR studio, and beside that there are also many other studios with great constructors able to bult up any kind of set. 

The country extending from north to south, has a very wide variety of landscape and potential sets. 

In the north, alps and dolomites have incredibly scenic roads and panoramas. In the center of Italy we have amazing countryside in Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. 

The south has beautiful jewels of architecture like the Amalfi coastal villages along with beaches, coats and island which are just beautiful, not to forget the architectural heritage of the cities of art such as Rome Venice and Florence, where the cities themselves have at open sky scenic sets, not to mention the background of fashion and design industry that allow production designers and wardrobe stylist to have great resources to put in front of the camera. 


Italian climate is generally Mediterranean, so pretty mild and can be divided in three climate zones. North of Italy, it normally cold winter and hot summer, with mild spring and autumn. The center has a very mild climate all year round, with no big differences between the seasons. The south and islands have a drier and warmer climate even in winter, spring and autumn are pretty warm and summer is quite hot. 

Of course, because of its geography, from the alps to the islands there are big differences in respect of specific areas.
