    Tom Holland cites one of his favorite action scenes, where Spider-Man runs across a series of poles to which boats are anchored.
    “Our stunt coordinator recommended that I wear shin guards, in case I fell...But I chose not to – which I regretted!”

    Note the shin guards in this take!
    And the set decoration details on the part of the building he had just run past...

    A fourth suit, is designed in the film by Peter - see first photos in this gallery. It is red and black and symbolizes the young Super Hero’s evolution, from his reluctance to battle the new global menace, to stepping up and being his own man.
    The settings for his discovery of self were meticulously created by Jones, Paré and their remarkable teams...

Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero must step up in in a world that has changed forever following the events of AVENGERS: ENDGAME...
SPIDER-MAN™: FAR FROM HOME expands the Spider-Man film universe, taking Peter Parker [Tom Holland] out of his comfort zone and his home in Queens, New York City, and hurling him across Europe during what was supposed to be a school vacation – but which becomes his greatest challenge and most epic adventure ever. Far from home, Peter must protect his friends, save the world, rise to a challenge only he can meet, and come to terms with his destiny as Spider-Man.
                                                              — Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios
 

“Far from home” includes destinations such as Venice, a village in Austria, Prague, Berlin and London!
Set Decorator Tina Jones SDSA International stepped from ALADDIN into the present day “real” world, albeit complete with superheroes and supernatural threats!
She paired with Production Designer Claude Paré and brought her inimitable team to the project, which included creating a section of Venice on a London backlot and working with ‘local” set decorators in various countries to bring about the wide range of sets. We asked her to give us a glimpse of her experience...
 
From Set Decorator Tina Jones SDSA International...
“The sheer pace was an exciting challenge with script changes leading to new sets popping out all over the place, from suddenly having to import full suits of armour for a Tower of London scene to a full working fairground carousel and Ferris wheel... which, incidentally, were the biggest props I’ve ever had to source, purchase and re-paint, as they arrived all covered in Marilyn Monroe graphics and bright colours!”

“The first scout I went on with the Production Designer Claude Paré was to Venice, and this provided me with lots of fabulous references for colours and textures, plus some great contacts for street dressing and souvenir shops. It was a monumental set to decorate...the working canals built on the backlot at Leavesden Studios in the UK, along with a myriad of small boats and gondolas that we imported from Venice. It was very tempting not to jump in, as we were dressing in the middle of a very hot English summer! Someone did report having seen a fish, but I think this was just a backlot myth...”

“Working with Claude was a wonderful adventure for us all. We had such a great time and were given some wonderful sets to bring to life. I was lucky to be accompanied with my usual propmaster and manufacturing team, and we made some pretty awesome props, from the jet interior, seats and cockpit to the drones, statues, huge Venice bell and a whole host of other bits and pieces!”

“It was an exciting 11 months and I think the excitement and fun that we all experienced shows in the final product...”
