Great News! I went up on Cinecitta Studios website today and was excited to read that Cinecitta is planning a "Universal Studios"-type theme park. I can't help but assume it is, at least partially, due to the success of HBO's "Rome" miniseries and the potential to capitalize on the elaborate sets that were produced for it.
"Cinecittà World intends to build a Park that, with a view on national and international accomplishments, but always acquainted of a European matrix and heritage, will "transport" visitors in the fanciest journeys of movie magic and entertainment. Located not far from Rome, the Park of Cinecittà World will cover a surface of 60 hectares. " - Cinecitta Studios
