(SFC) The first submission of the candidature file for Rome 2024 to the IOC will be celebrated with an official candidacy event produced by Filmmaster Events. It will feature 1000 participants, performances and special guests and weave a story about a trip through time.  The show will be animated through an emotional yet entertaining fanfare that will take guests from the first Rome 1960 Olympic Games up to now. 

Filmmaster Events has experience producing elite level sports ceremonies working with the 2006 Turin winter Games and the upcoming Rio 2016 summer Olympics.

Sportsmen of the past, present, and future will attend the launch along with two gold medal winners from the Rome 1960 Games and show will also pay homage to their podium victories.  Also, joining the guest list will be the Italian team members set to compete in Rio 2016 and special guests from  show business, films, culture and the sports industry. 

In addition, an internationally renowned Italian actor will narrate the show, taking the audience on a 60 year journey that will start with the era of the Dolce Vita and end in the future.  Creative artistic director for Filmmaster Events, Alfredo Accatino stated, "The event for Rome 2024 will be a huge show. We will follow the protocol but we will also add a highly emotional part, thanks to the participation of international artists who does not belong to the sports industry. They will create moments of pure entertainment and big emotions. New technological equipment has been created specifically for this occasion. 

"It will end with a huge surprise, a reference to one of the most beautiful moments of Rome 1960 Olympic Ceremonies. As in 1960, the audience will be involved to create a very special moment."

Rome is competing against Budapest, Los Angeles and Paris to host the 2024 summer Games. The IOC will vote their host city at the session in Lima, Peru next summer.
