When in Rome?
So, this weekend I went to Rome – well, not really. But, since I had a little part in the film, I was invited to the Angels & Demons (sequel to The Da Vinci Code) wrap party (to celebrate the end of principal photography, it still won’t be released until next May.)
The party was held on the GIANT set that production built – a scale replica of the Piazza Navona in Rome. And it was cool. It actually did feel like Rome – giant sculpture fountains, cafes, music, caricature artists, photo booths, people painted like statues, and food, food, food. They even had a couple large movie screens set up that played some classics (Roman Holiday, La Dolce Vita.) These pictures don’t really do it justice; it is an amazing set. And the trip to Italy, while brief, was a good one ;)
