Captivating the audience, by giving form, voice, body and content to all the different facets of life, from the power of feelings to the conflict between good and evil, and ensuring high-quality productions: this is our mission and it’s what we’ve been doing every single day since 1972.
We have always assigned prime importance to passion, creativity and innovation. All qualities which, over time, have led us to excel in the TV and film entertainment business, both in Italy and internationally. Backed by our know-how, our long tradition and experience, we are continuously evolving and always ready to pick up the gauntlets thrown down by the future, continuing to inspire the emotions of our audiences with engaging stories.
Because emotions are a universal language that can reach out to everyone, everywhere and with no limits. Just like us.
We base our work on passion and innovation, but above all on people, recognizing diversity as a resource, thus investing heavily in the discovery and growth of new talent.
For over 50 years, with our stories, we have been speaking to people’s heart, so that they can recognize and empathize with the characters. Emotions are the basis of our products, for this reason we have a team with different skills and personalities, extremely united, which thanks to the contamination of ideas, collaborates having fun and helping each other to achieve ever better goals and results.
With this in mind, we always try to work with partners who believe in the projects and have the same enthusiasm as our big family, because Publispei is a family for anyone who collaborates with us and this is our strength.
