Lecce and its province has got lots of potentials (in terms of movies making too; not accidentally some Italian and foreign productions for TV and cinema have been made here), as you can see below.
This also because Apulia Film Commission (http://en.apuliafilmcommission.it/) guarantees funds and tax credits. The musical “Holiday”produced by Eagle Pictures has been recently filmed in a town close to Lecce , just like the movie Walking on sunshine (http://arialuxuryapulia.com/walking-sunshine-shot-puglia/) and Point Break 2 ( http://en.apuliafilmcommission.it/senza-categoria/point-break-2015).
Yet, several investments in alternative energies have been made in my area (solar panels, sails/vanes, biomass, photovoltaic). Lecce was selected in 2010 by Lonely Planet release as one of the top 10 places to be visited (http://sispropertyandtourism.blogspot.com/2009/11/one-of-top-10-cities-in-world-lecce.html) and Salento (known as Peninsula Salentina) is the peninsula where my city is located (incidentally, it’s been the top touristic destination in the last 4 years, in Italy). Furthermore, Puglia Region, the Peninsula Salentine specifically, has received more than 5M registered tourists during last year.
So, to arouse your curiosity and to show you my roots (which are also yours), I sincerely invite you to visit my place, although “virtually” only, at the moment, by checking the following links:

It‘s also important to know that Lecce has been candidated for being the European Culture Capital in 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8gDH_k86aY and the University of Salento is globally known to have one of the top NanoTechnologies Laboratory – NNL
