Roman Holiday: Mouth of Truth


One of the most iconic films shot in Rome is Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn. Today I got to go to the La Bocca della Verità ("the Mouth of Truth") where a famous scene in the movie was shot. The actual statue, carved from Pavonazzetto marble, is a man-like face, located in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.
