Italian movie making was happening in my neighborhood last week and I hung out like a groupie to see all the action, or "azione" as the director yelled. The scene that they were filming, over and over again, was the actor, wearing one black shoe and one red shoe, was catching a bus. He had to run and catch the bus, wave to the driver, and jump in front of the girl waiting at the bus stop. And that was it. The funny thing was, they were filming in the middle of Piazza Carignano and there is no bus stop there, only pedestrians and cafes. No cars are allowed and so they had to construct and entire bus stop, get permission to have a bus there, redirect walking traffic, and deal with people like me hanging around taking pictures like the blog paparazzi. Here are the pictures.
