A plaque at the corner between via Cartoleria and via S. Stefano commemorates the birth of Gino Cervi on 3rd May 1901. Beside the roles of Maigret and Peppone, we remember him as the dubber of Laurence Olivier and Orson Welles. In 1954, Gino Cervi appears as the main character of a film entirely shot in Bologna: Il Cardinale Lambertini, directed by Giorgio Pastina, inspired by the homonymous theatrical work by Alfredo Testoni of 1905, and focused on the charismatic figure of the cardinal, who was to become Pope Benedict XIV in 1740.
