The Yellow Porsche of Montepulciano

Sounds like the title of a book! I was so mesmerized by Robert at Cannes yesterday, I completely dropped the ball with this exciting anecdote from my friends at Twilight Italia about Alice's Porsche:

At the beginning our loved racing car was covered by a grey robe, but our
indefatigable facilitator/ moderator, suspicious of the dimensions and by
the chromed wheels, have began questioning people around.

Mauro Pellegrini the owner of the tow truck, had orders by the production
not to uncover the car, but after explaining him who they were to his boss,
our heroines have even been invited to remain till the end of the

The big man youcan see in some pictures is one of the stuntmen. He had an
Alice wig, a bandana, a couple of elbow high red gloves, and seemingly from
far he actually looked like our loved little vampire/pixie.

Mauro secretly told us that there are two yellow porsche in Montepulciano,
placed in different places of the town. As they were not exactly identical,
one had yellow brake pad cover and another had them red, Production was
willing to spend to the incredible amount of €5800 PER PIECE to have them
all red!!!

Luckily they found out a way to paint them, but this episode says a lot on
how high is this movie's budget!!!

The helicopter we told you about ealier, has kept low-flying whole day long
filming aerial of the main square.. The fountain is not finished yet, so
probably this was a rehearsal or shooting for the DVD's extra-contents .

It also flown over where the porsche was, so probably we'll see some
Twilighters on the big screen : our Marghe's car has been filmed by Alice's
