Source:At first promised to open in 2011 then postponed to 2012 and then again… at long last Cinecittà World is in its final construction stages and is slated to open by mid-2014 near Castel Romano.
Like an Italian iteration of Universal Studios – but much more opulent – Cinecittà World will have rides and attractions inspired by Cinecittà Studios’ films and TV shows.
The theme park is located just outside of Rome and features attractions from the mind of Oscar winning art director Dante Ferretti with master planning by Valerio Mazzoli Studios.
Back again with some new photos!
