Netflix chooses Rome to open its headquarters in Italy. The audiovisual giant had already shown interest in local productions.
“Since starting the service in Italy in 2015, we have been enthusiastically welcomed by our many subscribers and we have been fortunate to work with a variety of creators, from the best known to emerging voices,” said Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President International Originals at Netflix for Europe, Middle East and Africa: “Opening an office in Rome is the logical next step in our long-term commitment here, and will allow us to strengthen our many creative partnerships and work on a growing range of Made in Italy films and series that will be appreciated by audiences around the world.
The new Netflix headquarters could be in the city center, with a team of about 20-30 people, engaged in different branches, from marketing to public relations, but also in the development of original content. So far there are several projects that Netflix has realized in Italy such as Luna nera (presented at MIA|Greenlit 2019), Suburra, Baby, and many scheduled series such as Curon, Summertime, Loyalty, Zero.
