A cinematographic itinerary in the province of Piacenza
"Belle al Bar" by Alessandro Benvenuti is a tour among the locals, the Duomo and the Piacenza station, but the real cult place for this area of the Emilia Tourist Destination is Bobbio (PC), where Marco Bellocchio filmed his debut, "I Pugni in Tasca".
Entirely set in the village where the director's family spent their summer holidays, the film takes place mainly in the mother's country house, while for some exteriors, have been chosen the curves of the state road 45 that follows the course of the Trebbia river, natural landscapes of a rare beauty.
The Castelletto cliff is the site of the dramatic apex of the film, which also moves into the bell tower of the Cathedral of Bobbio.
The village of Piacenza has been home to Fare Cinema, a highly specialized course in film directing that the Foundation chaired by Marco Bellocchio strongly wanted in these places so kind to him, reused by the director for the 2015 film, "Sangue del mio sangue".
Still in the province of Piacenza, the cinetour continues towards Cortemaggiore, where Francesco Rosi filmed - with regard to the reality of the facts - some scenes from "Il Caso Mattei", and the Mignano Dam in Val D'Arda, which offered the theater for the epic final of "I Lupi attaccano in branco", with Sylva Koscina and Rock Hudson.
