Now, let's do a rewind on the film....
Few steps back, again, on the banks of the Arno and looking at Ponte Vecchio - the oldest bridge in Florence crossing the river Arno.

I couldn't stop myself of saying THANKS for this bridge have been the only one in Florence to survive WW II.
And in 1966, when a massive flood wiped out the shops on the bridge, the bridge itself was strong enough to withstand the waters.
