Good museum to see old cameras, movie projectors etc. There is a short movie you can watch in Italiannwith English subtitles showing different movies. Very interesting and good place to spend some time. Loved the God father room.

If you like cinema this is the place to go. Personal presentation, lots of stuff, rooms buildt as original movie (I loved the Godfather studio). I came to the complex only for the "museum of landing" and it was worth it to go there.
