Bagni San Filippo


   
   

Bagni San Filippo is a fraction of the municipality of Castiglione d'Orcia in the Province of Siena, not far from Monte Amiata. It is a hot spring, small and has the presence of calcium deposits, which form white concretions of calcium carbonateas well as waterfalls. The name derives from that of St Philip Benizi, who was a prior of the Servite order, and who lived as a hermit here in the thirteenth century, and the grotto is open to visitors.
Le Meraviglie (2014), starring Monica Bellucci, Alba Rohrwacher, André Hennicke, Margarete Tiesel, Sabine Timoteo and Sam Louwyck was shot in several locations in southern Tuscany, one being Bagni San Filippo. Other locations include in Sorano and Sovana.

Bagni San Filippois situated in a splendid position between the woods of Monte Amiata and the wonderful countryside of Val D'Orcia. It takes its name from St. Filippo Benizi, the prior of Florentine order of Mary's Servants. He retreated as a hermit in this Tuscan's corner in 1296 to keep away from being elected Pope at the Viterbo's conclave.
In this small hamlet huddled around its hot springs, even the eye gets relief from looking at the imposing calcareous formations of the Fosso Bianco, some sort of petrified cascade that, immersed in the forest, will leave you filled with wonder.
The archaeological researches were bringing to light that Bagni San Filippo was special estimated under the Romans as a thermal bath locality. Thermal baths were restored in the 16th century at the times of Cosimo I de Medici.
Its fame is particularly owing to the advantageous properties of its five hot springs reaching a temperature of 52º C. These sulphur waters have even changed the surrounding landscape which is white as a consequence of calcium's deposits. In many sites deposits have originated natural structures which look like waterfalls. The most important one is known as Balena Bianca close to Fosso Bianco, a stream running at Monte Amiata's feet in a succession of warm and white pools.

Le Meraviglie

Many films are being shot in Tuscany thanks to the Fondo Cinema della Regione Toscana, a regional fund that provides support for young filmmakers. One of these young directors is Alice Rohrwacher, a 32 years old film director from Fiesole, near Florence. She is the youngest Italian to have won the Palme d’Or. Le Meraviglie (The Wonders) is the second film by Alice Rohrwacher.

Le Meraviglie (Alice Rohrwachter, 2014) is a magical realist portrait of a family of beekeepers in rural Italy. The film was shot through the allocation of the Fund Cinema of the Tuscany Region. The film, which stars Monica Bellucci, was shot in Sorano, some areas of the province of Grosseto and Siena in the town Bagni San Filippo.

The cast is composed by the beautiful Monica Bellucci, with actor and dancer Sam Louwyck, Sabine Timoteo, Maria Alexandra Lungu, Agnese Graziani, and Alice’s award-winning sister, actress Alba Rohrwacher.
The film revolves around Gelsomina, a girl who lives with her sisters and father in close contact with nature and animals, in a balance that close to perfection; its existence, however, is suddenly revolutionized by the arrival of a peer named Martin. This is the second film by Alice Rohrwacher, who had already debuted at the Festival with the movie Corpi Celesti, and then the winner of the David di Donatello.
