At Cine Europe in Amsterdam FTT announced that they had opened a new subsidiary in co-operation with KINOROMA.
For Thomas Rüttgers, Managing Director of FTT, this foundation is a matter of heart: “FTT has always had close ties with Italy. From 1972 to 2009, for example, we marketed an Italian brand, Cinemeccanica. Therefore, we are really happy to enter this market once again together with a competent partner.”
The second shareholder in FTT-DCI, KINOROMA, has a long-standing experience in the cinema industry and has been among the leading cinema outfitters in Italy for many years. “We think that the Italian market is now ready for a D-Cinema rollout on a large scale”, as Tony Vagnarelli, Managing Director of the newly founded company confirmed. Mr. Vagnarelli stressed that by sharing their experience and know-how FTT DCI could move forward digital technology in the Italian peninsula.
And the first success of this new partnership is already taking shape: FTT DCI will carry out the installation of 40 D-Cinema screens in the framework of an XDC VPF financing scheme with an Italian cinema circuit.
