Cinecitta Holding taps Gaetano Blandini

Nominated by Minister of Culture Sandro Bondi

ROME -- Gaetano Blandini, the top cinema official at the Italian Ministry of Culture, has been nominated to be the next head of Cinecitta Holding, the umbrella company that oversees Rome's storied Cinecitta film studios.

Blandini, who was nominated by Minister of Culture Sandro Bondi, said he would work to reduce Cinecitta Holding's budget and would study new revenue sources for the company.

Cinecitta's leadership stepped down earlier in June.
