Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key (Italian title: Il tuo vizio è una stanza chiusa e solo io ne ho la chiave; Sergio Martino, 1972)

This thriller movie is in many ways a typical ‘giallo’ that is an Italian genre of film with sexy crime suspense. Edwige Fenech is its idol. It is located in Villa Cavalli Lugli (17th-century) nearby Padua in the northeast of Italy. In this movie the inner circulation of the Villa follows the original distribution showing the divisions between the rich owners and the workers in their separate rooms, corridors and staircases. At this moment the Villa is under renovation and I had the pleasure to visit it.

Sketches made in Villa Cavalli Lugli, 2016: keystones of the portico's arch, view of the entrance hall, views of the eastern and western portico.
