The scene in which Clint Eastwood recuperates from a beating was shot at Grotte di Salone, Rome. The location is written on one of Carlo Simi's sketches in the Carlo Simi booklet from the Cinema Mediterraneen Montpellier, 1998. The same location was sued for the cut Tuco in the Cave scene in the GBU. The caves are located on the corner of Via di Salone and Via Case Rosse, adjacent to the Autostrada Roma-L'Aquila. I was not allowed to take photos when I visited the site, and I was told to first get permission from the Ministry of Culture, Rome. It would pay to get "official" permission  and not to visit the site alone - you will see what I mean if you visit the location.
