Videocentre

The restoration and reuse of the sheds of an engineering company led to the realization of the Terni Videocentre. The factory in question was the "Bosco" company, the second most important plant in Terni after the "Terni", located close to Porta Spoletina, adjacent to the medieval city walls. Antonio Bosco, founder if the company, started up his business as blacksmith and manufacturer of agricultural equipment in an old farmhouse at the beginning of the last century. The factory grew rapidly and in 1924 sheds were built that could adequately contain the increasing productive activity which ranged from boilers to the realization of plants for industries.

An expansion tha included crossing over the old Flaminia road, which, leaving the city, continued up towards the Somma. It was an interesting area for the presence of historical findings, even though these were no longer available: there, according to ancient chronicles, there once stood a large arch of triumph; in the same place there had been some ancient churches and, more importantly for history lovers, the Three Monuments are said to have stood, namely the cenotaph dedicated to the memory of the Tacitos, the historian Cornelio and his descendents Annio Floriano and Marco Claudio, roman emperors. A factory, the Bosco, which had always struggled with the space at its disposition, until it decided to build a new factory outside the city centre.

When, around 1980, the factory was relocated to the Terni-Narni industrial zone, the decision was made to acquire and restore the main buildings so as to make them available to the community for cultural activities retaking and restoring the oldest and most significant part of the factory and promoting in the retaking plan, the approach between the architecture of the early 1900s and postmodern elements.

The Videocentre was therefore born as part of a multimedia production system which included the multimedia library and the Papigno film studios. Several television fiction series have been shot in the sheds of the ex Bosco and the triple Oscar award-winning Roberto Benigni film "La vita e' bella" was made there.
