Locations

The series was filmed and set in various places in the old town of Perugia, the protagonist’s hometown. The sweet shop where Luisa started her business making confectionary and chocolate was reconstructed in Via Rocchi, recreating, with the help of master chocolatiers at Perugina, the original products she sold. Luisa meets Ada near the Maggiore Fountain in Piazza IV Novembre and her future husband Annibale on the steps of Sant’Ercolano. The pair become a couple in Villa Aureli Park in Via dei Cirenei, and go to live in Via del Lauro.
Palazzo Oddi, in Via dei Priori, the headquarters of the Marini Clarelli Santi Foundation is, in the series, the home of Leandro, while the location used for the Circolo della Nobilità was Piazza Piccinino and Palazzo Danzetta. Other parts of the city we glimpse in the series are the Morlacchi Theatre, the grand cemetery and Monte Malbe, used as the viewpoint of the Umbrian town.
Other locations around Perugia that were used for the series include Umbertide, Sant’Arcangelo di Magione (the location of the park on the lake in Passignano sul Trasimeno), Borgo Colognola (casa Sargentini) and Corciano, where Mariella Spagnoli, Luisa’s niece, made her own home available to the production team (used for Luisa and Giovanni’s love nest). For the Spagnoli home (actually the Assisi home), the Ginestrella country home in S. Egidio was used.
Filming also took place in other places outside the region, like Torre Astura on the sea (Nettuno), Biella and Turin.
The factory in Fontivegge, which provided jobs and services (like a nursery) for many families, and for which 14 chocolate-making machines were faithfully reconstructed for the series, was set up in Vigliano Biellese in Piedmont, in the disused buildings of the old Pettinatura Italiana factory, which dates back to the same period in which Spagnoli launched her business.
Last but not least, Turin was chosen as the setting for some of the indoor and outdoor shots: the Pfatisch patisserie; the San Carlo Café; the “Poveri Vecchi” Institution, and for the hospital scenes in Perugia and Paris; a building in Corso Massimo that provided the set for the Ministry of Industry in Rome; La Mandria Park in Venaria which is where the race track can be found.
