Where was From Scratch filmed?

The story takes place in several locations across the western world, using its environment to mirror the stages of the characters’ lives.

The Netflix romantic drama began filming in Los Angeles in April 2021 before moving to Florence, Italy in July. Production ended in August.

Many great works of film and television have been filmed and are based in Los Angeles, such as Everything Everywhere All At Once, House Of The Dragon, and Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. From Scratch takes viewers through the City of Angels, showcasing the beautiful sights LA has to offer.

The rest of the filming took place in Italy, mainly in Florence. The Cinemaholic reports that the crew was spotted filming many important sequences in and around Via Lambertesca and Borgo Santi Apostoli, among other scenic spots in the city. Additional shots were shot on the island of Sicily.
