“Your laugh is a sudden silvery spoon.”

A brand new tour following the traces of Mario (Massimo Troisi), the postman,  on his bicycle delivering some mails for Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret). Indeed, the famous poet has been exiled to a small island in Italy for political reasons and with whom he expresses through poetry and literature his feelings about life.

The main places on which the tour is based and that you’ll be able to explore are: the island of Procida, Marina Corricella (a small colorful fishing village), the beach of Pozzo Vecchio (now called “the postman’s beach”), the postman’s inn and the hills that form the tail of the island. 

Part of the film was also shot in Salina, in the Aeolian Islands, and in particular in Pollara di Salina. On these islands took place many scenes. For example all scenes in which Mario/Massimo is pedaling through mountains that border a cobalt sea, or the scenes in which the various characters walk or talk on a rocky beach. If you are hopeless romantics you’ll also enjoy visiting the café in which Mario gets to know the love of his life, Beatrice.
