(ANSA) - Rome, July 19 - A fire in the middle of the night
destroyed part of one of the main parts of Rome's legendary
Cinecitta' film studios.
According to a statement from the fire brigade which
extinguished the flames, the fire erupted at around 01:30 local
time Thursday.
Damage was not severe and confined to the famous Studio 5,
said Roberto Cicutto, the chief executive of parent company
Istituto Luce Cinecitta'.
According to Cicutto, only a part of the studio, housing
unused sets, caught fire.
"The fire was stopped at the very beginning. This morning
you couldn't even smell the smoke," Cicutto added.
Studio 5, the largest still-sets location in Europe, is
where Federico Fellini filmed scenes in most of his movies,
including classics like La Dolce Vita and Amarcord.
It is also used by both state broadcaster RAI and Mediaset
to film episodes of game shows.
Cinecitta', which opened in 1937 during the regime of
Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, said repairs would be
completed by the end of August.
