    Film from Italy -- Ferrania starting production 2014

    There has been some discussions around the web on these quite surprising news: apparently Ferrania is going to start manufacturing film for still photography and motion picture use 2014.
    Wikipedia states:

    The production of film was acquired in 2013 by the new company FILM Ferrania s.r.l. which took over some of Ferrania's manufacturing equipment and buildings. Former Ferrania technicians are involved too. FILM Ferrania inherits the historic brand Ferrania to launch analog products suitable for the actual needs of cine/photo market. Ferrania's film production is going to start again in early 2014.
    On flickr, one member stated that he had contacted Ferrania Technologies and asked about this, and according to him, they had confirmed that a new company really is about to start production again:

    The owner of the domain http://filmferrania.it is the same person who has updated the Wikipedia article. Whether he is the one behind this new company or is just connected somehow remains to be seen.

    Anyway, interesting news!

    This rumour turned op at the begin of the year in the italian press, though only related to cine film and about a very limited production.
    Since then I got no update on that. I take this with a heap of salt.

    The only thing that is sure is that Ferrania's film department is in a state of vigilant coma.

    I can confirm though that the website of Ferrania (Ferrania Technologies that is) has vanished and this new placeholder (Film Ferrania ?) under a different address has appeared.

    Watch how many photography blogs pick this one up.... read: none!
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Sorry for sounding cynical but I'll believe it when people can actually buy it.

    Update:

    Since 2012 Ferrania skipped at their website their offerings of coated products at their homepage but still left them and the hint at their coating facilties at other places at their site.
    Meanwhile they are back again by presenting themselves soley as chemical plant doing synthesis work.
