Practically every region or little town in Italy has been a set for film productions, both italian and foreign ones. Some of the Hollywood films set in Italy were pretty good, some other cheesy, unconvincing or just plain awful. Most of them share a common flaw: the multitude of stereotypes, that portay Italy as a country still struck in the 1950s, where everyone plays mandolino and listens to opera. Some of the movies set in the beautiful scenario of Amalfi and Sorrento coast are no exceptions to this rule, while others really capture the beauties of the place. From Sorrento to Amalfi, from Positano to Ravello, almost all of the most important towns in the area have welcomed a movie set; let’s have a look at the most famous:

Scandal in Sorrento; the third installment of a 4 films saga, it starred Italian director and actor Vittorio De Sica and Italian actress Sophia Loren, who replaced Gina Lollobrigida. The film is entirely set in Sorrento, which was becoming an international destination in those years. Between a Tarantella and a Limoncello, the film also consolidated Loren’s reputation, and a few years later she started a successful career in Hollywood. She is today Sorrento’s honorary citizen.
