The Fondazione Ente dello Spettacolo, an articulate and multimedia organization, is involved in the circulation, promotion and evaluation of cinema culture in Italy. It is placed as a reference point within the area of cinema industry culture both for private organizations and for the institutions and operators working in the sector. It actively collaborates with all of the principle cultural, artistic and industry organizations within the field of Italian and international cinema.
The organization aims to involve and interest an ever increasing general public in the world of the cinema within its diverse cultural, social and economic areas and aspects, thereby rendering the public fully aware of its values and social importance. It also aims to create effective synergies between the numerous characters active in the sector and the world of institutions; to carry out projects in view of the organization of events with other institutions which are operational in the field of cinema culture. Such objectives are realized through the activities of both traditional and electronic publishing, the organization of cultural events, international conventions and seminars, the organization of festivals, meetings and cinema previews. The awareness of the importance of harmonizing both tradition and innovation, the value of Italian cinema’s historical, cultural and spiritual identity along with an openness towards novelty and innovation governs the realization of our objectives.
