    The Quantum of Solace production has moved to the luxurious Tuscan Tower of Talamonaccio.

    The Tower of Talamonaccio (photographs can be viewed here and here) was originally built by the Spanish as a defence against Saracen invasions.

    It has since been transformed into a stylish villa available for rental throughout the year.

    According to reports from La Nazione – Massa Carrara earlier in the month, this location was personally chosen for the 22nd James Bond film by producer Barbara Broccoli.

    Filming is expected to involve Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko and Giancarlo Giannini. A scene involving 007 and Camille arriving at the tower by yacht to meet with Mathis will reportedly be shot.

    Other tidbits mentioned were that the Bond production will only be filming inside the tower and that there won’t be any local extras required.

    A more recent article from La Nazione stated that filming is expected to last from 25 April to (at least) the 27th. A ‘short, but intense’ scene will be filmed.
