Se mi lasci ti sposo

Giulia and Marco are a couple in crisis, but they cannot break the relationship: precarious and penniless thirty-year-olds, they cannot afford to pay double bills, rent and daily expenses. At this point the two come up with an idea: why not pretend to get married, to collect the money of the wedding gifts and so be able to afford to each go on their own way? Thus begins the staging: a deconsecrated church, musicians who leave much to be desired and buffets sui generis, the fiction takes shape.

Too bad that, in the end, not everything goes as planned. Friuli Venezia Giulia is the master in the film: most of the scenes were shot in Palmanova, a fortress city founded by the Venetians in 1593. Its characteristic star shape, clearly visible from above, makes it a real rare treasure of urban planning: it is the only one together with Peschiera del Garda to be built in this way in Italy. Some scenes, however, are shot in Gorizia, a border town where cultures, traditions and languages mix. In its surroundings, the Collio, the hilly area of eastern Friuli, famous for its wine and breath-taking landscapes.

There are many accommodation facilities in this area, including the Castello di Spessa, in Capriva del Friuli, a location for important cultural events, such as the Piccolo Opera Festival, a musical event that is held in the summer months. In 2022, moreover, the owners of the castle inaugurated the Teatro di Verzura, which looks at the tradition of Italian Gardens: green grassy steps sloping down to the shaded stage of the branches of a hundred-year-old oak, accommodating up to 500 spectators.
