The numbers speak for themselves, go and read them: millions of euros have been wasted to finance films that were only in theaters for a few days, with ridiculous numbers of spectators and takings. And in many cases they did not even have access to platforms and TV. "There will soon be a severe reform to eliminate obvious distortions." This was stated by the Minister of Culture, Gennaro Sangiuliano, in an interview with “Il Sole 24 Ore”.
“An immense waste of resources. Money was given without control, causing costs to rise", underlined the minister, who added: "Cinema is very close to the heart of both the government and me because we recognize it as one of the most relevant, modern and close art forms to everyone, as well as being a supply chain that employs many people. Then all the ministers were rightly called to propose cost containment." “I asked that the funds remain within the scope of culture. So to give cultural centers to young people, maintain all Italian museums, invest in multimedia libraries, proceed with new excavations,” he specified.
