Visiting Filming Locations of "Profondo rosso" (1975) in Turin and Rome, Italy

Directed by Dario Argento
Written by Dario Argento and Bernardino Zapponi
Starring David Hemmings, Daria Nicolodi and Gabriele Lavia

A story of a man who investigates a series of murders performed by a mysterious figure wielding a hatchet.

Profondo rosso (also known as Deep Red) was shot mainly on location in Turin, Italy, a "magical" city according to Argento, in sixteen weeks. The main reason why he chose Turin was because at the time there were more practicing Satanists in Turin than in any other European city, excluding Lyon.


 Many scenes take place at Piazza C.L.N., Turin, Italy
