A room with a view, James Ivory
A room with a view

This British drama, adapted from the homonymous novel by E.M.Foster, about a young Englishwoman Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham Carter) touring Italy with her older cousin (Maggie Smith) uses many of Florence’s landmarks. First there is the room mentioned in the title, with a view over the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio, which is actually made up of three locations, one of which is a room of the former Pension Quisisana, which has now become room 414 in Hotel degli Orafi.

Other interior scenes of the room were filmed on the terrace of a private apartment in Florence and in the eighteenth-century Villa-Fattoria di Maiano, a beautiful estate between Fiesole and Firenze, which was used as the set for Tea with Mussolini (see further), as well.

This beautifull estate is on florence farm shopping! Visit the farm, buy your delicious olive oil and enjoy the amazing view of Florence, go to Fattoria di Maiano.


Fountain of Neptune, Piazza della Signoria

The scene where Lucy faints, witnessing a bloody knife fight between locals, is filmed by the Neptune Fountain (Fontana di Nettuno), Piazza della Signoria.

Other Florentine filming locations in this movie include: the statue of Grand Duke Ferdinand in the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata and the monument to Dante inside the Church of Santa Croce. While the latter is the burial place of many illustrious Italians, such as Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Rossini, Galileo and Foscolo, Dante Alighieri was not actually buried here, but in Ravenna, and only has a monument here.
