Netflix has officially opened a new office in Rome, which will house around 70 members of staff.
The new location adds to the company’s other European offices in the UK, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland.
Netflix said the new office cements its “long-term commitment” to Italy and the country’s creative community.
“The dream of Netflix is to support creativity around the world,” Netflix founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings said.
“We celebrate our new Italian home, our growing business in Italy, the creative community we are so honoured to be part of, and all of the fantastic Italian stories on our upcoming slate,” added Hastings. “The breadth and variety of our Italian slate perfectly represents our ambitions – new series, films, documentaries and unscripted shows from Italy’s most prestigious creatives and exciting new voices. Stories that are Made in Italy and watched by the world.”
Netflix is due to open its new Polish base later this year.
