Tea with Mussolini, Franco Zeffirelli
Tea with Mussolini

Tea With Mussolini, directed by Zeffirelli, is a touching and nostalgic, semi-autobiographical movie based on the director’s memories of his childhood in Florence before and during World War II. Born in 1923, Zeffirelli was a child born out of wedlock, brought up by a British governess after the death of his mother. That’s how he got involved with the The Scorpioni, a small close-knit group of elderly English and American ladies who taught him the English language and passed on to him their passion for literature. It were The Scorpioni who inspired him Tea with Mussolini. The movie is set in Florence and San Gimignano. The cult scenes in the English Cemetery were filmed in the Cimitero di Porta a’ Pinti, known as “Cimitero degli Inglesi in the centre of Florence.
