|Gondolas on Rio de San Barnaba|
Indiana Jones fans may recognize Chiesa di San Barnaba, the church standing in for a library in The Last Crusade (1989). Its bell tower dates from the fourteenth century and is one of the oldest in Venice. The church now hosts exhibitions. (The film won the Oscar for Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing and was nominated for Best Sound and Best Music, Original Score.) Recently there’s been talk of an Indiana Jones 5.
Casino Royale (2006) didn’t receive any Academy Award nominations (unlike the original version of the James Bond film from 1967, which was nominated for Best Music, Original Song). But you can spot the Grom gelateria on Campo San Barnaba in one of the scenes.
