On the Set of “Call Me By Your Name”

When I bumped into pictures from the set of Call Me By Your Name (2017) by Luca Guadagnino, I felt my id radar tingle, because I knew plenty of beauty products were waiting to be identified. The pictures, taken by the Italian photographer Giulio Ghirardi, beautifully portray the elegant interiors of the 17th-century Lombardy mansion where the film is set. The green-tiled bathroom [1] is filled with Italian drugstore products which bring me back to my childhood.
