TVCO has concluded a deal with digital platforms iTunes, Google Play and Amazon for a package of films: the French title Homelands [+see also:

The partnership between TVCO and Cristaldi Film for the world sales of their classic Italian films was met with great interest. Negotiations are under way for Canada, Japan and the United States.
Finally, TVCO has acquired the international distribution rights to Bruno Colella’s latest film, My Italy, a deep and ironic look at Italy by four of the most important contemporary artists, who all star as themselves: Krzysztof Bednarski, Mark Kostabi, Thorsten Kirchhoff and HH Lim. The film is currently being completed, and in early March, to mark the reopening of the City of Science in Naples, footage from the movie will be screened.
