Furore: a hidden pearl on the Amalfi Coast

Furore, Costiera Amalfitana, Salerno, Campania - Amalfi Coast

The houses built in Furore – a small town hidden away on the Amalfi Coast, in the province of Salerno – are called “monazeni”, which probably comes from the Greek meaning “solitary life”.

Nothing seems easier than leading a lonely existence here: in the haven of this “fjord” – a wound cut into the coast by the Schiato torrent, over millennia – the small houses of the seaside village, perched on a steep, rocky cliff, are immersed in a wonderful isolation.

Many VIPs have chosen to spend their most leisurely days in this elusive location, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a member of The most beautiful villages in Italy Association.

Two of them are director Roberto Rossellini and actress Anna Magnani, who also shot a movie here: “L’Amore”, renamed “Ways of Love” in the United States – forgoing the evocative rhyme with the name of this beautiful, secret pearl on the Amalfi Coast.
