Background and production


Pedro Damián announced his intention to produce a remake of Muchacha italiana viene a casarse in the spring of 2014.[8][9] Casting for the telenovela was conducted from May through July in Mexico City.[10] In July and early August, Eleazar Gomez, José Pablo Minor, Jessica Coch, and newcomer Ela Velden were among some of the first actors to be confirmed for the telenovela.[11][12][13] Irán Castillo was previously attached to the project, but later dropped out, citing health-related concerns.[14] Livia Brito and José Ron were officially confirmed as the protagonists on August 18, 2014.[15]



Production officially began on August 25, 2014. Brito, Ron, and Velden filmed scenes and promotional spots in Maratea, Italy for two weeks. The cast began filming in Mexico City in early September.[16] [17] Livia Brito and Ela Velden studied Italian in order to more accurately portray their roles.[18][19]

Production in Mexico City ended in late April 2015. In early May 2015, Brito, Ron, Velden, Isela Vega, Maribel Guardia, Fernando Allende, and José Pablo Minor traveled to Maratea, Naples, and other Italian locations, including a beach in Cersuta, where they spent time filming the telenovela's finale. Production was officially completed on May 12, 2015 in Italy. The cast returned to Mexico City in late May.[20][21]



On October 6, 2014, the cast participated in a Tibetan Buddhist prayer ceremony, which was also attended by the Italian ambassador to Mexico, Alessandro Busacca.[22] On October 15, 2014, the cast, crew, and a promotional trailer, featuring exclusive new scenes, were presented to media in a special event at Televisa San Ángel; it was streamed live for fans on the telenovela's official website.[23]
