“With no story there is no movie. We had many success of Italian stories internationally, that started as Italian books. As a Film Commission we need to focus on new stories to open new horizons and business opportunities. Italian writers have the capacity to talk about topics like mafia in a new way, different and full of human its and new points of view. I think that in this global market, local stories are coming back.”
