Ponte Vecchio and the love padlocks

2 Aug


Spending the day in Florence today – I love this place.
With my first view of the love-locked padlocks on the barriers – that have been an inspiration for our shrine to love design for R&J


All the chains have padlocks attached with love messages and notes near the bridge.
It has been an extraordinary time here with a mixture of work and holiday – I spent the day yesterday going through the script with composer Sandy Nuttgens, where we sectioned all the text and created a strong palette of sound guides fro rehearsal. Doing this here in Italy in the hot temperatures was really inspiring and fun.
