Cinecitta Holding going private

Handover will take effect Monday

VENICE -- Cinecitta Holding, the parent company of Italy's storied Cinecitta Studios, is becoming more private.

With the creation of the Italian Entertainment Group -- backed by film producer Aurelio De Laurentiis, fashion magnate Diego Della Valle, banker Luigi Abete and the Haggiag family, prominent Roman financiers -- effective control of the company will pass into private hands Monday.

It is not clear what impact the change will have on the way Cinecitta Holding is run.
