“The inhabitants of the Amalfi Coast are crazy, they are drunk on sun. But they know how to live, taking advantage of a strength that few of us possess: the strength of fantasy”.
This is how Roberto Rossellini, maestro of neo-realist cinema and husband of Ingrid Bergman, loved to remember the Amalfi Coast where he set many of his films (mainly in Maiori) between the 1940s and the 1950s. The fantasy of the inhabitants and the excellent climate make the Amalfi Coast a special place to visit, particularly towards the end of the summer, in the autumn, when most of the tourists have gone home and it is possible to enjoy the colors and scents of these places in tranquility, savoring the local products which are celebrated with lively traditional festivals.
Anyone who undertakes a tour of Italy is constantly offered the opportunity to admire the monuments and architectures of the past in the thousands of places that preserve the art and history of the Bel Paese. However the spectacle that greets visitors to Scorrano, a small village in Salento, Puglia, leaves them speechless. Because here the architectures are made of light, yet they are just as impressive and majestic as the greatest monuments.
Every year, in July, thousands of people travel to Scorrano for the feast of Santa Domenica.
