Facts about

The filmmakers wanted to donate something to the monks who acted in the film since they refused payment. According to Rossellini's daughter, he expected them to ask that the donation be something charitable - setting up a soup kitchen or the like. Instead, the monks surprised everyone by asking for fireworks. Rossellini saw to it that the town had an enormous, elaborate fireworks display that was the talk of the region for years.
The one who was called "Jester of the Lord" was Brother Juniper, Francis's disciple, not Francis himself as the Italian title erroneously indicates.
