In the movie Italian Job, in Venice, after the explosion when the safe drops into the river below, Charlie, Left Ear and John submerge themselves in the water to crack open the safe. Handsome Rob and Napster escape both with the dummy case via a speed boat. But Steve, who was upstairs painting the PoP and planting the explosive on the apartment ceiling just below the safe, is not shown escaping from the apartment. How did he escape? This is Venice, so roads are out! Any ideas?
All attention was focused on the boat and on the dummy safe. Steve would have had to have been a little sneaky to avoid the guys in the house if they immediately ran down to his floor, but presumably he was packed up and ready to go by the time the floor blew and he could have more or less made it out the front door and just walked away.
