Istituto Luce Cinecittà “is the public company that operates as the operational arm” of Italy’s Ministry of Culture. Covering the Istituto Luce’s productions from its origins in 1924 during the fascist era through 1962, the Historical Archive of the Istituto Luce describes itself as “one of the richest in the world, which continues to grow to become the audiovisual memory of the Italian twentieth century and of the Mediterranean area.”
Not all footage on the Archivio Luce website is embeddable but some is available on the archive’s YouTube page.
