'The Tourist' comes to Campo San Stefano

Cheryl was approaching the Campo San Stefano today when she saw film equipment being unloaded from a barge:

 Nearby, a sign warned of the dangers associated with a movie shoot:

Grip carts were lined up outside a building near the former San Vidal church:

Two actors in tuxedos (or possibly maitre d's from the movie company's catering service) were preening next to the building entrance:

Meanwhile, Maggie--our celebrity-sniffing service dog--was surveying the campo, looking for signs of The Tourist's stars, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie:

Addendum: A local newspaper, La Nuova, has published a location map (based on a satellite photo) that may be useful if you'll be in Venice during the movie shoot and want to catch a glimpse of the goings-on.
