The business created by this new partnership, located at the famous Cinecittà studios, in the heart of Rome, partners two of Italy's strongest media businesses and this new agreement means that Deluxe expands its post-production and distribution service reach within both Italy and Europe. This agreement also means that Deluxe Italia adds audio dubbing and mixing to its portfolio of services.
"Cinecittà Studios is considered to be the heart of Italian cinema. This, combined with Deluxe's worldwide technical infrastructure and reputation, mean we are truly able to create a one stop shop" said Ranieri de'Cinque, Managing Director of Deluxe Italia.
Deluxe has strategically repositioned itself in recent times having realigned from traditional film services towards digitally enabled solutions across all platforms. It is one of the few companies to have successfully transitioned from analogue to digital.
"Two iconic names are coming together, providing our clients with a boutique Italian service offering but with world-wide scalability and reach" added de'Cinque.
