Movie Tour of Florence
Florence is a city loved by film makers throughout the world and holds a distinction for the films that have been shot in Tuscany. The city has witnessed nearly a century of film making; since way back in 1908 when the first film, ‘Wanda Soldanieri, Guelphs and Ghibellines’ was made by Mario Caserini, Florence has hosted a solid film tradition; and it’s here where the first screening rooms were opened. The most prestigious Italian film prize called The David di Donatello is the equivalent of the American Oscars here in Italy. The trophy awarded each year is actually a smaller model of the sculpture of David which today is housed in the National Museum of Bargello in Florence.
On this tour we’ll visit and explore the locations where various films were shot and see the close links they share with the history of the city of Florence. Some of the famous films made in Florence are: ‘Paisa’ (1946) by Roberto Rosellini, ‘The Girls of San Frediano’ (1954) by Valerio Zurlin, ‘Metello’ (1970) by Mauro Bolognini, ‘My friends’ (1975) by Mario Monicelli, ‘A Room with a View’ (1985) by James Ivory and ‘Inferno’ (2016) by Ron Howard.
