The climax shooting scene of the Godfather III takes place on the steps of the Teatro Massimo opera house at Piazza Verdi, Palermo, Sicily, Italy.
In the climax of The Godfather III an assassination attempt is made on Don Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino) on the steps of the Teatro Massimo opera house in Palermo. As people are leaving the evening performance a bullet grazes Michael but fatally strikes his daughter Mary Corelone (played by Sophia Coppola). The screen shot shows the scene just before Michael realizes his daughter has been seriously shot. Mary then falls to the ground and Michael reacts emotionally when he realizes she has been killed.
