BRESCELLO_DON_CAMILLO_E_PEPPONEBrescello is a village in the province of Reggio Emilia, where the films were shot of Don Camillo, taken from the stories of Giovanni Guareschi. Even today you can see the various places and objects that were present in the film: for example, the church of Santa Maria Rising, where he resided Don Camillo, or the adjacent square, Piazza Matteotti, where is located the town hall, which ruled Peppone. In the square were placed in memory of the two characters, two bronze statues depicting Don Camillo intent to call someone with a nod and Giuseppe Bottazzi (Peppone) who raises his hat in greeting. A Brescello turned five films in the series: Don Camillo (1952), The Return of Don Camillo (1953), Don Camillo and Mr Peppone (1955), Don Camillo Monseigneur … but not too much (1961), Comrade Don Camillo (1965). On 16 April 1989 it was inaugurated the “Museum Peppone and Don Camillo”, where inside you will find many examples of the famous saga such as photographs, original posters, scenic reconstructions, costumes and the famous bicycle of Don Camillo.
