Cinecittà (“cinema city” in Italian) is being described as an opulent Universal Studios. Presumably, it will also have better food.
The park will be located just south of Rome and features attractions from Oscar winning art director Dante Ferretti and rides based on classics filmed at Cinecitta Studios, such as Ben-Hur.
It was supposed to open in 2011, but…well, better late than never.
It’s now slated to open mid-2014 on 400 acres at Castel Romano, and hopes to pull in over 4 million annual visitors, with hopes of becoming the biggest theme park in Europe.
