Forza d’Agrò — Godfather

The incredible variation of landscape and cities with incredible sea views has long made Sicily a favorite location of many directors.  Forza D’Agro is an enchanting medieval town that faces a privately owned Arab-Norman castle atop a spur of red dolomitic limestone.  On one side of the main plaza there is a street that leads to the baroque Chiesa Madre.  With its beautiful 16th century facade it became the set for an Easter celebration scene in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather Part 2, and as the wedding location in The Godfather Part 3.
