Proscenium Pictures Sign May Indicate Filming in Montepulciano

italy set  new moon montepulciano proscenium pictures new moon Proscenium Pictures Sign May Indicate Filming in Montepulciano

A mysterious sign has been spotted in Montepulciano on a gate of the Fortezza. The sign says “No Visitors Allowed” by order of Proscenium Pictures. This is the same company that recently held audtions for extras, as shown in the flyer that was posted previously. This sign may indicate pre-production is under way at this location to begin filming later this month.

UPDATE: A reader sends in this note, and says that while the area is for New Moon use, it won’t necessarily be for filming purposes–

I just wanted to let you know that the Fortezza will not be one of the locations, it is simply the place where make-up artists and costumes will be. Because it is near to Piazza Grande, where the big scene will be shot.

[thanks, TwilightersItalia!]

    I'm a norwgian student living in Italy, not far from location! I'm heading out there to see if there is any posibilities to get some snapshots of the set. But as far as I know, the security is high… The city is perfect for the scene btw. Can't wait! Almost the whole cast is coming too! Nikki, Kellan etc although they're not in that scene at all, but they'll be here as well. I'll try to have more info soon..

    Got a ladder anyone? ;P

    very cool!
    I'm from Austria and with train it would take me 13 hours to get to montepulciano. I would really love to be there. But it doesn't look that well, because i think my parents wouldn't let me go there :/ plus i'm not sure if there is even a possibilty to see somone from the cast…
    But i think montepulciano is really beautiful (i was there 2 years ago) and the perfect place to shoot the volturi scenes.

    I'm Italian and I live about 2 hrs (by car) away from Montepulciano…I still don't know if to go because things over here are getting a little bit too crazy: hundreds of fans united to go to the airport, hotel, set etc etc….honestly I think it'll be total cahos.
    I hope everything will go on well: I don't wanna feel ashamed to be Italian (and I can swear I felt like that in the past meeting some of my fave musicians and other stars)

  • Vampgirl

    I wonder if Entertaiment Tonight is going to send reporters over there? I remenber they showed footage of Angels and Demons, so I'm sure they won't mind seeing a sneak peek at the Volturi scenes. I'm going to pass out, this is what I have been waiting for. I love the wolves. but give me my vampires.
