This beautiful film was actually filmed in Sienna Italy in a palace which can be toured at the foot of the huge piazza and elsewhere in Italy, including Venice. That is why it seemed so authentic, because it is. I used to watch it and it added to my desire to travel to Italy and study Italian history. Finally, I did actually tour the building that was used as the interior of the palaces and I could almost see the film scene for scene as I did. It is another example of the brilliance of Orson Welles. I always watch it when it is played. Tyrone Power is beautiful and I have grown to enjoy Wanda Hendrix performance more with time as she does look a lot like some of the portraits of Italian women of the time. All of the characters look as if they stepped out of Renaissance paintings. As for Orson Welles it is a privilege to see his work and study his acting, directing and film-making.
