Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti is one of Milano’s longest standing schools and one of Italy’s best known audiovisual institutions.
The School is part of Fondazione Milano - Scuole Civiche, a higher education institution established and supported by the Municipality of Milano and sponsored by the Department of Culture.
Active since the early 1960s, the School meets the demand for the artistic and professional training for all the creative and technical audiovisual professions in Italy and abroad. At the same time, it serves the community in its role as a "civic school" offering basic training and lifelong learning.
Its mission is to support, develop and enhance the artistic, creative, and entrepreneurial skills of young students to help shape the next generation of directors, filmmakers, artists, producers, and, in general, professionals along with the entire film and audiovisual chain.
