"Paisà" picture "psa031b"

The place is in Rome, Via Lutezia 11 (the building with the arch) where Federico Fellini and Giulietta Masina lived (actually the apartment belongs to my family) and where Fellini wrote with Roberto Rossellini, Sergio Amidei and Celeste Negarville the screenplay "Roma Città Aperta".

Excellent personal information from Federico De Rosa, many thanks.

So although the scene is set in Firenze, it apparently was actually filmed in Roma!
