Cinematographic itinerary to discover emilian location for movies
An emotional journey to discover Emilia: an evocative location and movies set.
From the streets of the historic centres of Parma and Piacenza, location of famous productions by Emilian directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci and Giorgio Leopardi, to the quiet hilly landscapes overlooked by the imposing castles of Torrechiara and Castell Arquato, both sets for masterpieces such as Ladyhawke.
It will be magical to immerse yourself in the "Mondo Piccolo" of Giovannino Guareschi, witness of the adventures of Don Camillo and Peppone, and to discover the medieval villages of the Bassa, whose evocative atmosphere gives life to characters such as Luciano Ligabue, who pays homage to his land with the film "Radiofreccia" and Antonio Ligabue, the controversial painter, played by Elio Germano in the film directed by Giorgio Diritti "Volevo Nascondermi".
Not to be missed are also the production areas of the famous Parmigiano Reggiano, which is featured, together with actor Stefano Fresi and Chef Massimo Bottura, in the recent movie "Gli Amigos", directed by Paolo Genovese.
