Italy’s Cultural Heritage Minister Dario Franceschini was at the Rome Cinecitta’ film studios January 30th, 2018.
He toured the glorious 80 year-old film studios that have been founded under Benito Mussolini along with three-time Oscar winner Dante Ferretti. Many a famous movie was shot there, such as the original "Ben Hur", "Cleopatra" and the "Gangs Of New York", just to mention a few.
