Here is your detail scan of the picture on the wall:

As I told last time you posted it, it was damn familiar for me. Of course it was -- I was there!

But it is not in Italy. Just North of it: Brig, Switzerland, the Stockalper Castle and the College Church, with the Riederhorn in the background:

Webcam with the Stockalper Castle:

I had a suspicion about Switzerland, because those special arm-rests for wooden seats are a 'luxury' I'd expect only there, and indeed now I found  a picture of a former SBB 3rd class wooden interior:

So if the inscription above the door is "Don't smoke" in Italian,  Fran was right, and this was somewhere in the Italian part of Switzerland at the end of WWII.

Well, still difficult reference because I don't watch it (eyes glaze over in 10 seconds), but I know it's about murder scene evidence analysts. Fortunately, no murder involved in my investigations :-)

BTW, another modern picture of Brig with a better (but still valley-bottom) view of the church to the right of the castle:
