Le curiosità storiche della nostra torre normanna
The Norman Tower is the oldest watchtower on the Amalfi
Coast and was built between 1250 and 1300.
This picturesque tower, set among the rocks, was considered
a wonderful subject for many landscape painters. We have
representations from 1777 and 1817, and the tower is still used
as a popular subject to this date. In the 20th century Luca
Albino made several representations of the tower and one of
these paintings is on display at the Palazzo Mezzacapo in Maiori
and another hangs in the major art gallery of Salerno.
The tower was also a location for Roberto Rossellini's
famous movie “Paisà” (Paisan”). There are pictures of Ingrid
Bergman and Roberto Rossellini enjoying their time at the tower.
