20 Oct 2013 Hugh Grant, spy in Naples
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.
