This is known as Hollywood on the Tevere; it had its golden age in the 1960s when great American film producers came to Rome, requiring use of the city's studios for their works. Cinecittà was founded in 1937 by Mussolini and many famous actors have walked through the entrance on Via Tuscolana: Fellini created his masterpieces here, Sergio Leone brought his spaghetti westerns to life in these studios and many of the industry greats have been on these sets. Cinecittà now plays host to several foreign productions. In the summer there are cinematography exhibitions and guided tours.
