In over 100 years of cinema, numerous directors have chosen the city of Florence for their movie sets, for both the beauty of its landscapes and the city's architectural perfection. The city's streets, piazzas and palazzi evoke an illustrious past and are able to give viewers a unique visual emotional experience. Walking through the city center, you can't help but remember some of the most beautiful cinematic moments in film history. In piazza della Signoria, you'll recall David Niven in “The Statue" or Joseph cotton walking with Joan Fontana in “September Affair.” Alberto Sordi filmed in the piazza twice, as did Gassman in “Arcidiavolo” with Claudine Auger and Mikey Rooney, directed by Ettore Scola. And don't forget Marcello Mastroianni in “Così come sei” and Anthony Hopkins in “Hannibal."
