“At point ‘9A’ – explains Valente – it was expressly written that the production company undertook to mention the city of Gravina in the thanks for the credits. Unfortunately Gravina is not there. Of course, it is little compared to the echo that is having our bridge and its beauty, which is enchanting the whole world, as evidenced also by the fact that the photos of our bridge have been included in the book On the tracks of 007 on the places where the film was shot around the world, but the administration did a lot to get that production company to choose Gravina “.
