The film by Guy Ritchie, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E." was partly filmed in Italy, in the Gulfs of Naples and Pozzuoli. Tagged Warner Bros, and co-starring – among others - Hugh Grant and last Superman hero Henry Cavill, here a CIA agent fighting evil in the Tyrrhenian Sea, the film is a remake of an American cult TV series of the sixties.
It tells how, during the Cold War, two spies - one from the West and one from the East - decide to form a team to track down and destroy a German scientist, who’s trying to create a new atomic bomb from his refuge in the Aragonese Castle of Baia, the great fortress of Roman origins, rising on a rock spur dominating the sea of Pozzuoli, in the very place where, according to the main historical and literary sources, the villa of the Roman dictator Julius Caesar rose up.
