Lombardy Office

The Lombardy Office of the CSC, established in 2004 thanks to an agreement between the Fondazione Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and Regione Lombardia, has the mission of training new professionals in the field of corporate audiovisual communication, documentary and advertisement.

In 2010 the new venue of Viale Fulvio Testi in Milan, in the spaces of the ex Manifattura Tabacchi has been inaugurated: a broad space, freshly renewed, conceived and designed to host a new and fully functioning show-business citadel, capable of offering great opportunities and new impulse to the initiatives the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia is planning for the Lombardy territory.

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.
