Movie and photo production

Comune di Como collaborates with the Lombardia Film Commission, no-profit foundation of Regione Lombardia and Comune di Milano, to promote movies, TV shows, documentary films and commercials in the territory, in collaboration with Como Chambers of Commerce and local associations.

Besides the promotion of Como and its territory, also local companies and artisans benefit from this.
