Venice, January 7 - Filming for the upcoming television show The Young Pope will head to Venice on Monday, the setting for several scenes in Paolo Sorrentino's eight-episode series starring Jude Law and Diane Keaton. The scenes will be based around St. Mark's Square and Campo San Vio, and will involve night time filming. During shooting the areas are set to be completely sealed off. The series, a joint production of Sky, HBO and Canal+, focuses on the pope's complex character and how he balances his rigid conservatism with his deep compassion for the poor and weak. It also explores and analyses power dynamics in the Vatican. Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said that he will meet Sorrentino during his stay in the city to discuss the formation of a club of actors and artists aimed at helping the city of Venice boost its cultural profile.
