Govt set to help Italian cinema industry says culture min

Ticket discount will bring people back to appreciate big screen

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 25 - The government is set to help an Italian cinema industry that has been hard hit by the COVID pandemic and a steep decline in the number of cinema goers, Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano said Friday.
    "There'll be a decree on tax credits for cinema that will try to give cinema a hand, above all Italian cinema, a decree that will be for Italian films", said the minister.
    Sangiuliano defended a measure recently passed after being set up by the previous government that earmarks 10 million euros for cinema ticket discounts.
    "It's a measure set up by my predecessor, and if we hadn't done it we would have lost the funds.
    "I think that with this discount we can incentivize people to return to the cinema, to appreciate the value of the big screen". (ANSA).
