  • 'Now' required

Vitti leaves Rabal's house having broken off her engagement. 8 Via dell’Antartide at the corner with Viale dell’Esperanto in the EUR (Esposizione Universale Roma) suburb of Rome, location of much of this film.

  • 'Now' required

Turning west brings the Water Tower (il Fungo), also seen in 'The Last Man on Earth', into view.

  • 'Now' required

The former Palazzo dello Sport, now the PalaLottomatica, from Via dell’Antartide just before it reaches Viale dell'Umanesimo.

  • 'Now' required

Rabal catches her up and escorts Vitti to her apartment at 307, Viale dell’Umanesimo. This is north-west of Rabal's house. I reckon a quicker route would have been to cut along the Viale dell'Esperanto but then maybe they felt like the walk.

  • 'Now' required

Vitti arrives at the Borsa (Stock market), Piazza di Pietra, in the centre of Rome near the Pantheon. But this is the east side on Via de'Burrò.

The Borsa is housed inside the remains of the Tempio di Adriano. Here Vitti remonstrates with the impatient driver (Delon?) behind her as she pays the taxi fare.

Vitti follows a man who has lost his shirt in a money market crash. The corner of Via di Pietra and Via de'Burrò and it's still a Farmacia.

  • 'Now' required

On the Viale Umberto Tupini, Vitti and Delon watch Delon's car being towed out of the Lago dell’ EUR. Note construction is near completion on the Palazzo Eni on the east side. Vitti notes that Delon is more concerned about his car rather than the drunk thief's life.

This is south of the west end of the Lago. The Giolitti restaurant from close to the Viale Oceani with the basilica dei Santi Pietro e Paolio towering above.
