The set of Florence in 1400 was designed by Marco Dentici for the 2002 Italian TV series Francesco by Michele Soavi, starring Raoul Bova.
Afterwards, the set was adapted for other shoots. In 2010 the church façade was modified to match the typical Tuscan architectural style of the 15th century, for the filming of Neri Parenti’s Amici Miei – Come Tutto ebbe Inizio, the prequel of the cult-movie Amici Miei directed by Mario Monicelli.
In 2012, the set was partially re-adapted to recreate the city of Verona for Carlo Carlei’s Romeo and Juliet, with Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, and Hailee Steinfeld.
The set underwent another change in 2015 for the movie The Young Messiah with a portion transformed into a landscape of the time of Jesus.
