Pierre David, J4 and Khadine are three of ten seductive sculptures touring the world and that are now for a month in our city. Some faces seem neutral, others convey nostalgia, others the joy of landing. The location of the statues, the first next to casermetta San Regolo, the second and third a few meters away near the headquarters of the Lucchesi nel Mondo Association, is a kind of homage to the many people of Lucca who over the decades have gone to distant lands in search of fortune and becoming an important reference in the communities abroad.
From art films to romantic comedies, from historical films to entertainment movies, Lucca and its surroundings have appeared many times on the big screen, as a protagonist or simply in the background.
The historic center of Lucca and its narrow alleys, the Renaissance palaces and the mighty walls, the magnificent historic villas, the gardens and the hills, the landscape, its atmosphere of a small capital, full of charm and romantic suggestions, have made of the city and the hills an ideal set for many films.
