By John

Series and TV movies, but also documentaries, major music and art events, programs for children. The most important operators in the global market will be in the Sicilian capital, from today to Friday 19 April, to participate in the Rai Com Screenings, the presentation of the 2024 catalogue, an event created with the active support of the Municipality of Palermo.
Sixty-five, coming from Europe as well as from Australia, from Japan as well as from the Middle and Far East, will dedicate themselves for three days to Rai's vast production. A thriving and growing market, whose main dish is once again made in Italy fiction. An increasingly rich line up presented by Rai Com, which offers international buyers new releases such as “Gerri”, “Marconi”, “Kostas”, “Libera” and “NUR” and recent successes, ranging from “Il Clandestino” to “The long night”, from “Imma Tataranni – Deputy Prosecutor” to “The investigations of Lolita Lobosco”, passing through “Mina Settembre”, “Vincenzo Malinconico”, “I Bastardi di Pizzofalcone”, “Cuori” and many other series and TV movie. Inevitable in the Rai Com catalogue, “Il Inspector Montalbano”, which boasts a global success spanning over twenty years, and “Il Paradiso delle Signore”, sold in over seventy countries.
The event will be kicked off by a video presentation to the international guests of the Rai offer in the setting of Villa Igiea which will be followed, in the following days, by guided tours to discover the most evocative places in the city. The meetings will be hosted tomorrow by Palazzo Chiaramonte, the prestigious headquarters of the University of Palermo, in the historic center of the Sicilian capital. With 4,000 titles, over 600 catalog films, 700 classic films and over 8,000 hours of television product, Rai Com is one of the largest global suppliers of content for broadcasters and distribution companies.
During the Screenings, Palermo will also host the Rai Open Doors special event at the Galleria D'Arte Moderna. Three days in which students will be able to discover the professions of TV alongside the professionals who work on Public Service programmes. A real television studio will be set up in the Isgrò Room of the Gallery, where students of all ages will be able to learn by playing how to “make radio and television”.
