The International Circulation of Italian Cinema is a three-year research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (PRIN 2015). It aims to map out the forms of distribution and circulation of Italian cinema abroad, investigating the methods of its exportation and the operations that, in some particularly important markets (the USA, the UK, France and Switzerland), help to shape and model an idea of Italian cinema and, more broadly, of Italian culture and “made in Italy”.
