70s Film Set in Montenero - shooting Virzi's latest filmFor some weeks now director Paolo Virzì has been shooting his latest film in and around Livorno. You may have spotted him and his troop in well-known landmarks like the Pancaldi lido and Piazza di Montenero.
Virzì is no stranger to Livorno since he was born here in 1964. He has lived in Rome for some years now, but this is not the first time he has used Livorno as a backdrop to his films. In 1997 Ovo Sodo won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and put Virzì on the road to fame.
