It has been said that Bagnacavallo has a special environment and spirit in its buildings, corners and atmospheres, which make it a perfect stage for films; maybe it's also because its town centre has kept its historical image through the centuries, and this fits well to cinema. Probably this reason has lead several filmmakers, directors and screenplayers to stage their stories and films in Bagnacavallo; some has decided to make it the main location of their films, some other just picked some special corners or atmospheres which were not able to find anywhere else.

Beside, in 1996, Piazza Nuova was the stage of the Dante's readings of Inferno by Vittorio Gassman.

None of those films is actually about Bagnacavallo as the town itself, the only film which was created and written for Bagnacavallo, as the ideal place in Romagna, is La mazurka del barone, della santa e del fico fiorone by Pupi Avanti (1974), which was shot somewhere else and just contains the image of the town street sign with the name Bagnacavallo.
