It's in Italy!

Back in June, Cinespia (an outdoor movie screening organization in Los Angeles), hosted a screening of To Catch A Thief (1955).  The film is famously shot on the French Riviera.  To advertise the event, they posted this picture of a seating arrangement and wrote that there would be a photo booth:

Is there anything more gorgeous?  Is there?  Even though this picture just scrolled by me, it creeped into my subconscious and inspired me to plan my own trip to the French Riviera (in three weeks!). 

Well, today on Conde Nast Traveler they posted a picture of the Il San Pietro di Positano Hotel in Positano, Italy:

.....and wrote that they make "a perfectly simple burrata dish with zucchini, mint, and garlic", so obviously I had to investigate further.....and discovered that the bench is real!!!!!  And it isn't in France!  It's in Italy!

And seeing as I don't leave a stone unturned, this is the burrata (although a different preparation)!!!!

So after dealing with a wicked case of travel envy, I decided to to dig around the internet to check out some Cinespia photo booth pics, and discovered that they didn't recreate this bench at all!  False Advertising!!!!!
