My Brilliant Friend Season 3 Filming in Florence

I’m a huge Elena Ferrante fan having devoured the Neapolitan Novels in the past 5 years. Not only did I enjoy the novels but also loved the HBO series “My Brilliant Friend” (L’Amica Geniale) which has had a successful run of 2 Seasons with 16 episodes. Being a huge fan of the production, I couldn’t be more happier to see the filming of My Brilliant Friend Season 3! Yes, it is happening right in the centre of Florence. I’m excited to be sharing these shots from fellow content creators who shared snippets from the filming location on Instagram. It is #FerranteFever for a reason, folks!
