La vita è bella

Visiting Arezzo, Italy where they filmed the 1997 Academy Award-winning, Italian film La vita è bella (Life is Beautiful).

On the way to Arezzo, we drove over the Ponte Buriano, a stone seven-arch bridge in the Tuscany region of Italy. Built in 1277, it was used by Leonardo da Vinci in the lower-right quadrant of his painting Mona Lisa.
