Central Office – Rome

Everything started in Rome, in the thirties. Today the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia has offices in several italian regions, and major foreign collaborations, but for decades anyone who wanted to enter the film industry had to come to Via Tuscolana 1520, where the building designed by Antonio Valente stands.

The cultural project was ambitious, and kept its strength during the years: a place where the students could rely on structures and technologies to learn cinema by doing cinema. Theaters, gyms, screening rooms, laboratories, lights, sewing rooms, joineries: a massive commitment that made the CSC one of the few schools where anything is possible.

Great opportunities

A major added value for the students of the Rome Office is the presence, inside the CSC, of cultural institutions such as the Cineteca Nazionale, and the Luigi Chiarini Library, but also professional services such as the Service Cast Artistico, that helps the acting students, and not only, to get into the market.

At the center of a great network

The attractive force of the Central Office in Rome is balanced by a growing presence of the CSC on the national territory and abroad. The structure of Via Tuscolana allows to optimize resources and make students work together, but it is also the center of a new idea of didactic that systemize local resources. Many young professionals have, and will, enter the audiovisual industry through specific and decentralized paths, that can always rely on the support and the prestige of the historical Central Office
