Filmmaker Sofia Coppola has married in the southern Italian town where her great-grandfather was born. She married Thomas Mars, lead singer of the French rock band Phoenix and the father of their two young daughters.
The ceremony took place in the garden of a palazzo which her father, Francis Ford Coppola, has renovated in the centre of Bernalda. The town, near the UNESCO-recognised troglodyte settlement of Matera to the north, was home to Francis Ford’s grandfather, Agostino, before he emigrated to the United States.
