ARRI has opened the doors to a new Rome-based office, to support the Italian film and TV industry.
In the past years, Italy has become a favoured shooting location for major international productions due to the variety of locations as well as available production services and skilled local crews, said the company.
The office is situated in Rome’s Prati district, and includes a creative space/show room, and large warehouse. Visitors can see ARRI products on show, including cameras, lenses, stabilisation systems, lighting, and electronic and mechanical accessories.
“It is with great pleasure that we celebrate the opening of the new Rome office,” said Christian Richter, general manager sales and solutions EMEAI at ARRI. “The Italian film industry has an incredible heritage that needs no introduction. ARRI’s new presence in the Italian capital shows the will to be an integral part of this community to bring support to our loyal customers and users who have been working with our tools for a long time.”
Natasza Chroscicki, managing director ARRI France and ARRI business development director MED-Benelux-NA, responsible for ARRI Italy, added: “We also open our doors to the next generations of filmmakers and share knowledge by hosting demos, workshops, and training in these new premises.
“After the challenging times of these recent years and the necessity of remote work, this office will finally serve as a homebase to the young and vibrant team of ARRI Italy. Here, they will be able to physically connect with each other and with customers to grow our presence in this active market.”
