Milan-based Alfacam Italia S.r.l. Ready to Start Operations on Italian Market
Alfacam Italia will be managed by Luigi Pirola, who gained more than 25 years of experience in the television business. He started as an engineer, then became subsequently senior engineer, production manager and senior production manager with the Italian public broadcasting company RAI.
Gabriel Fehervari, CEO of Alfacam, commented: "With the establishment of Alfacam Italia, we will be able to strengthen the position of Alfacam Group on the Italian market. From similar experiences in France and in Germany, we know that establishing a permanent seat in a country, managed by a local person, in this case an experienced Italian producer, opens a lot more doors and offers a lot of logistical strength in that country for all divisions of the Alfacam Group. We are typically targeting in Italy Serie A and Champions League football, operas in Milan, Rome and Verona, bicycle races for the EurolinX division but also distribution for the HD1 Sports and EXQI culture channels in Italy".
In recent years, Luigi Pirola was involved in many top sports and cultural productions such as the World Football Championship 1990 (Italy), the African Cup of Nations 1992 in Senegal, the F1 Grand Prix at the Imola and Monza circuits (1997-2000), several operas and classical concerts at the Scala in Milan and the Verona Arena (1996-2001), La Traviata (Paris 2000), the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics 2002, the Winter Ski World Cup Final 2004, the Athens Summer Olympics 2004, the World Cycling Road Championship Verona 2004, the Giro d'Italia (2002-2007) and many other cycling events in Italy.
Alfacam Italia is based in Cernusco sul Naviglio, only 5km from Milan Linate Airport. The 400 sq. metres warehouses and offices are suited to accommodate two large OB vehicles and equipment trucks.
Apart from this new subsidiary in Milan, Alfacam has also two other subsidiaries in Europe: Alfacam France s.a.s based in Vitrolles near Marseille and Alfacam Deutschland Gmbh in Munich.
