In Italy, the showrunner’s career is still relatively unknown. “Showrunner Lab” took place in June in Prato and Florence. The second edition dates and locations will be announced during the event in Venice.
ITTV Forum&Festival promotes “Italian TV, its content, its creative and professional talents, its locations, brands, and styles. In two words: the “Italian system,” granting economic revenues and, in general, new relationships between Italy and the U.S. through the entertainment industry: tv series, movies, documentaries, and web series. “ITTV is the cultural gathering of audiovisual content – says Valentina Martelli, CEO of Good Girls Planet. – we thought of a formula where panels became relaxed conversations between the highest professionals of Italy, the U.S., and the rest of the world. A place for exchanging ideas and experiences. The fertile terrain for new relationships, partnerships, and strategies, discussed during the networking time following every event”.
