“La Testuggine”
is the italian name of the Tortoise…

This iconic scene in Blade Runner inspired us for the name of the studio. That's the first scene where we get a first glimpse of the psychotic nature of the "Nexus-6" replicants.

Holden: You look down and see a tortoise, Leon.
It’s crawling toward you…
Leon: Tortoise? What’s that?
Holden: You know what a turtle is?
Leon: Of course!
Holden: Same thing.
