Movie and photo production
Comune di Como collaborates with the Lombardia Film Commission to promote movies, TV shows, documentary films and commercials in the territory, in collaboration with Como Chambers of Commerce and local associations.
The Communication Office (contact person Chiara Casnati email: firstname.lastname@example.org) helps organize shootings in terms of logistics, documents, and contacts with local services.
Besides the promotion of Como and its territory, also local companies and artisans benefit from this.
Many productions have been already set at Lake Como and the movie-guide "Stars of Lake Como" has been published.
Regione Lombardia has published the guide "Lombardia superstar - a region in 100 movies", telling how movies are of great importance in Lombardy. Como (and its lake) is one of the most popular places for movie production in the region.
Recently, Como has hosted the Italian "Il Capitale Umano" by Paolo Virzì (2013) and "Una Grande Famiglia" by Claudio Milani, Bollywood movies such as Bramhan (2013), Majnu (2013), Rangbaaz (2014), Race Gurram (2014), and a Korean one, I Secondi Vent’anni (2015).
