Blood and intrigue for the third and final season of the Franco-German fiction series – making record breaking viewing figures in many of the 90 countries in which it is broadcast – which portrays the events and intrigues of the Borgias, one of the most influential families in Renaissance Rome. Two the locations were chosen in Fvg. The Castle of Gorizia, in its debut film, where instruments of torture and blood-stained clothes are the focal point of an execution. Throughout its history, the castle underwent several changes and was used for different functions, from administrative centre to barracks, to prison. Bombed during the First World War it was rebuilt in the 1930s. The other location is the Castello di Villalta (Udine), chosen for some outdoor duel scenes. This is the most important medieval castle of Friuli dating back to 1158, repeatedly besieged, destroyed and rebuilt between 1200 and 1400.
