Bop Decameron~ Wood Allen’s Next Film + Penelope Cruz

Woody Allen is filming his next release, “Bop Decameron” in the heart of Rome. The $25-million movie is based on a collection of 100 medieval tales written by Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio in the 14th century. The cast includes several Italian actors like Roberto Benigni (Life is Beautiful), as well as American actors Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Judy Davis, Ellen Page (Juno), Alec Baldwin and Allen himself.

“Every time has been like making declarations of love for certain places and projecting onto the screen my feelings for the places which have counted most in my life,” Allen said to an Italian newspaper La Repubblica. “I hope to do the same with Rome.”

Meanwhile, Allen’s Midnight in Paris is becoming the highest-grossing movie of his career.

ROMA -dolce & gabbana martini gold ad

This Dolce & Gabbana Martini Gold ad with Monica Bellucci was filmed in Rome (parts are in the neighborhood of Trastevere).  I used to live in Trastevere and I must say, there is no place like it. Every week you were bound to see a movie being filmed…it really is a charming area.

some of my photos from trastevere:
