Tea with Mussolini Movie.

Tea with Mussolini Movie.

Friends have asked whether the scenes where the English and American ladies save the towers from being blown up by the departing Nazis in WW 2 is based on any truth? And did the ladies actually work at saving the fresco of Santa Fina? Were they really held in custody in San Gimignano? I cannot find any WW2 history of the town to give me information on this. Please someone send me an email with the information. Information much appreciated! :)

Question about San Gimignano

The women in the film are based on a group of real ladies referred to as the Scorpioni - by finding out about their story you may find out if this is true or not.
