The Genova Liguria Film Commission has a new member: Portofino. The ‘marriage’ was celebrated by the mayor, Matteo Viacava, on December 13 at the Teatrino Comunale in Portofino, in the presence of Ilaria Cavo, councilor responsible for culture at the Regione Liguria, Giovanni Toti President of the Regione and Cristina Bolla, president of the GLFC – Genova Liguria Film Commission.
The aim of the operation was to create a system, to promote the village itself and the whole area of the Gulf of Tigullio which came under the spotlight following the visit by Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, the stars of “Murder Mystery” produced by Netflix.
«An added value, both in terms of logistical support and image»: this is how Cristina Bolla comments on Portofino’s addition to the members of the regional agency of which she is the president.
“We met people who want to work and offer their professional skills for the region” declared the mayor, Viacava, “by joining the film commission we are maintaining our tradition as a village that has hosted and hosts famous actors and directors and we can get even greater visibility.”
The entry of Portofino, which will be followed by other town councils on the Ligurian Riviera, ends a very special year that saw the first edition of the Digital Fiction Festival held in Finale Ligure in August, which aims to bring the best international series to Liguria, as well as the ‘debut’ of the Genova Liguria Film Commission in Los Angeles, at the ITTV Festival, where it accompanied two ‘made in Liguria’ series both produced by Cattleya with the support of the film commission itself: “Petra” for Sky Italia and “Masantonio” for Mediaset.
The next rendezvous with the Digital Fiction Festival is July 30-31 and August 1-2, 2020.
