Effems - CC4.0

The splendid Castelbuono castle was the backdrop to some scenes of the film "Nuovo cinema Paradiso".
Nuovo Cinema Paradiso is a 1988 film written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The soundtrack was composed by Ennio Morricone, in his first collaboration with the director. Among the performers we remember Philippe Noiret, Salvatore Cascio, Marco Leonardi and Agnese Nano.
The film tells the story of the love for cinema and the life of the young Salvatore: the strong friendship with Alfredo, the projectionist of the small village theater of the province in which he lives, the discovery of affections, the land of Sicily.
The Castle of Castelbuono is in the film the school of the young Totò.
