Castello degli Schiavi – Godfather


In Fiumefreddo, heading towards the sea, there is the splendid Castello Degli Schiavi.  The name is a denomination that has been passed down from the distortion of the original name,”Casteddu di Scavi,” that indicated the existence of an excavation, actually a lava stone quarry.  Castello Degli Schiavi is famous throughout the world because of its use as a movie set.  It achieved worldwide fame thanks to Francis Ford Coppola, who decided it was the perfect setting for the main scenes in The Godfather Part 1 (1972) and The Godfather Part 2 (1974).  The unforgettable car explosion after the wedding, and the discussion with Don Tommaso about the Italian politicians.
