Is 007 going to Italy (again)?

Fellow Bond fans, it seems our beloved english spy is going to have the Bella Vita again.

Three days ago, immediately after wild rumors sparkled about Bond 25 going to Norway, the italian newspaper Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno, a southern spin off for the giant Il Corriere della Sera, declared in this article that, based on rumors (and it’s only rumors, no real news was given by any official source), Bond production is aiming to film in Matera.

Matera is a beautiful little city placed in southern Italy, in the Basilicata region. It is known worldwide for its Sassi.

I Sassi di Matera are one of the first known istallment of humans in Italy. It is believed the there was human presence living in the area since around 7000BC. They essentially are houses built in what is called Tufo, with the new city raising above them.

Also, people is still living today inside the Sassi. This would probably be a very interesting location for a foot chase.

As we already stated, at the moment this is only a rumor, we will give you more info if and when they come out
