With a motivated and modern organization and a widespread network of overseas offices, ITA provides information, assistance, consulting, promotion and training to Italian small and medium-sized businesses. Using the most modern multi-channel promotion and communication tools, it acts to assert the excellence of Made in Italy in the world.
The audiovisual office of ITA is engaged in:

- supporting the Italian Film Commissions in attracting film and TV inward investment, and in promoting Italy as a film making destination, and the Italian technical industries as partner of choice;
- fostering co-production projects by helping to connect Italian film makers (producers, writers, directors) with international counterparts;
- helping Italian film and TV festivals to grow internationally by inviting to Italy buyers, producers, broadcasters, commissioning editors and other foreign representatives of the audiovisual sector.
ITA works for the promotion of the Italian audiovisual industry in close connection with ANICA (National Association of Italian cinematographic, audiovisual and multimedia industry), APA (Association of Italian Audiovisual producers), Doc/It (Association of Italian Documentary Producers), Cartoon Italia, and with Cinecittà and the Italian Film Commissions.
Through its engagement in the internationalization of the Italian audiovisual sector, ITA also promotes worldwide the “Made in Italy” image and the Italian life-style, indirectly contributing to the development of other important Italian production sectors (tourism, food, fashion, furniture, culture).
