Do you remember the Mediaset series "Carabinieri"? If you do, you'll also remember the numerous references to the Umbrian town where it was filmed: Città della Pieve. The beautiful town, on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, was the backdrop for exciting chase scenes between criminals and the carabinieri, as well as for romantic love stories. The series featured actors like Manuela Arcuri, Lorenzo Crespi, Ettore Bassi, Martina Colombari and many others besides. The carabinieri barracks were filmed in what is actually a high school, in via Maddalena 34. The famous Bar Pippo, a meeting place for the characters in the show, is instead found in Piazza Matteotti. Gemma's "Vecchia Pizzeria" is also found in the town's historic centre, in via Garibaldi, a short distance from the Oratorio dei Bianchi where you'll find Perugio's magnificent painting, Adoration of the Magi. Walking around Città della Pieve gives you the chance to see beautiful views and try delicious local dishes based on the town's "gold": saffron from Città della Pieve.
