She goes to Cinecittà to audition as an extra and is thrust into this almost endless night during which she discovers herself. Joe, plays love interest Sean Lockwood.

According to Collider.com. the origin of the film is both from the glamorous and constantly changing scene of old Hollywood after World War II.

This is a time when classic films such as 1953’s Roman Holiday, starring Audrey Hepburn, were filmed, as well as many ‘sword and sandal’ films such as Elizabeth Taylor’s big-budget Cleopatra.

The director revealed that Antonaci’s character was actually inspired by a real-life young woman named Wilma Montesi.
