Locations

The third season of My Brilliant Friend is set in the 1970s. Against a context of protest and student riots–accurately recreated in Turin, mostly in the two main university buildings in via Pietro Giuria and Palazzo Campana – Lila and Elena have taken different directions. The former has stayed in Naples where she works in a factory in the toughest of conditions, set on resisting a fate of submission and ignorance. Elena has written a novel received with interest and curiosity: at the presentation in Milan (sets were built in galleria and corso Vittorio Emanuele II and in the area near the Cathedral) Elena reencounters Nino Sarratore with whom she has always been in love.

Florence is the protagonist in this season of My Brilliant Friend

Key settings in Seasons 1 and 2, the neighbourhoods and squares of Naples (piazza Dante, piazza del Gesù, the Port’Alba area, to name just a few), the
historical centre of Caserta, Torre Annunziata, Santa Maria Capua Vetere are naturally all present. Another key location is the rione Luzzatti on the eastern outskirts of Naples, recreated for the series in the disused Saint-Gobain factory, an area of 20,000 square metres in Marcianise outside Caserta.

Season 3 sees Elena marry Pietro Airota who has been awarded tenure at the University of Florence. Tuscany’s main city plays an important role in this phase of the young writer’s life, her civil wedding ceremony takes place in Palazzo Vecchio’s Sala Rossa. Other locations include piazza Santissima Annunziata, piazza Duomo and the streets of the historical centre, the Stibbert Museum where Elena meets Nino and his family and several private locations including a historical residence located between via de’ Servi and piazza Santissima Annunziata.

Vintage cars and extras transformed Viareggio’s famous shoreline to recreate the setting for a stroll on a 1970s summer’s day. Also in Viareggio, Bagno Raffaella was faithfully rebuilt as a beach club in Versilia from that time, with vintage umbrellas and sun loungers, extras in vintage clothing and accessories, and a bar with a token-operated telephone and a jukebox.
