Yellow Porsche, red flags spotted
Looks like the city of Montepulciano is preparing for New Moon.
Twilighters Italia reports that red flags and banners have begun to spring up all around Montepulciano in preparation for the scenes that will be filmed for New Moon soon in the Italian city. A giant fountain is being constructed in front of the fateful clock tower as well.
The red flags are because of the old district that is going to be used in the Piazza Grande shot. The production chose some of the districts in Montepulciano with red colors, the ones mainly used during the celebration.
In particular they chose the Voltaia district, asking them to participate as extras to the movie, in the mob, to show the feeling of an organized carnival, with flags and costumes really existing.
Also, Alice's yellow Porsche was also spotted in Montepulciano.
Mauro secretly told us that there are two yellow porsche in Montepulciano, placed in different places of the town. As they were not exactly identical, one had yellow brake pad cover and another had them red, Production was willing to spend to the incredible amount of €5800 PER PIECE to have them all red!!!
Luckily they found out a way to paint them, but this episode says a lot on how high is this movie’s budget!!!
Here's a video on the set!
