After watching this video, nobody will be able to stop you buying the first available air ticket to the Eternal City!
“Omaggio a Roma” (Homage to Rome) is a short movie telling the story of Rome through astonishingly evocative images that have placed the city in the world’s collective memory.
It was made by Franco Zeffirelli, celebrated Italian director of films and operas. Under his direction are the beautiful Monica Bellucci and the acclaimed tenor Andrea Bocelli. The two are representing Tosca e Mario, the leading characters of Giacomo Puccini’s opera.
I posted the short version. Click here for the complete version of the short film (25 minutes).
