La Vedovella | Peppino De Filippo | Maratea Film
"La Vedovella" (Pretty widow)
by Silvio SIANO , 1964
The film, shot in Maratea and surroundings, was one of many "light" feature films by Peppino De Filippo, enlivened by the presence of a very young Margaret Lee.
It can be considered among those first attempts in the 60s to promote a tourist resort through cinematographic art.
Considered at the time scandalous more because of the plot that legendary spicy scenes, the film "The Vedovella" was filmed in the Historical Center of Maratea and partly in Praja a Mare.
For some outdoor shootings, some local young people were also hired as extras.
La Vedovella - plot
Susy realizes the situation and shrewdly takes advantage of it, not disdaining to commit her graces unreasonably. In fact, he succeeds in obtaining the unanimous vote of the city council against the expropriation of his land, and, cried all the interested suitors, dedicates his affection to Corrado, a technician of some important factories in the area.
