Day Trips in TuscanyEdit This
It seems that film directors love Tuscan spas. They find them suggestive, almost miraculous places. How can we forget the Montecatini of “Oci Ciornie” or the huge pool at Bagno Vignoni shot by Tarkovsky in “Nostalghia”? In more recent times, Bernardo Bertolucci and Carlo Verdone took inspiration from the spa resort and its waters in “Io ballo da solo”. The Roman director, Gregorio, directed “Al lupo, al lupo” at the Saturnia spa. The film featured himself as a wanna-be musician turned DJ, Sergio Rubini as a successful pianist and Francesca Neri as a woman with a double life searching for her sculptor father.
The main character from “Io ballo da sola”, Lucy, is also involved in an exploratory journey. She arrives in Tuscany following her mother’s suicide, looking for the young Italian who had given her her first kiss 4 years previously.
