SCALA images are often used by many Italian and foreign media production houses. Whether to recreate single works of art – such as the numerous paintings reproduced for the Title sequence of “The Young Pope” walking down the art decorated halls of the Vatican, or as decoration in the sets of Tomb Raider, of the remake of “Rebecca”, or of the TV series “I Medici”. Scala can supply single paintings or entire cycles of frescoes, such as those of the Sistine Chapel, which were masterfully used to recreate entire locations as in the case of “The two Popes”.

Big media groups involved in historic and artistic documentaries fully appreciate the benefits of the richness and variety of SCALA content which covers many eras, locations an themes.. SCALA also offers unusual or unique footage, such as the famous footage of New York at the beginning of the century from the MoMA film library which was used for Martin Scorsese’s “Fran Lebovitz, a life in New York”.

Here are just some of the film and tv productions with which SCALA has collaborated.
