Clooney Film in Abruzzo

The American
Filmed in Sulmona and Castel Del Monte, 
Abruzzo, Italy

Known for it's beautiful mountains and Adriatic Sea views its the secret gem of Italy.  Property is less expensive and less touristy than Rome, approximately 3 hours away.  Pescara and Chieti are the more coastal areas while Atessa and Sulmona are mountainous.  My grandparents and great-grandparents were born in Bugnara of the L'Aquila province.

The town of Castel del Monte, Abruzzo, Italy

In 2006, Castel del Monte was named one of "I Borghi Piu belli D'Italia", the most beautiful villages of Italy. In return for this honor, the town agreed to promote historic preservation and environmental protection. An earthquake damaged the area several years ago and the town is still recovering.

Typical small street in the village. Gerety photo.
