If you travelled back in time to the Middle Ages, you would
be surprised to see that Marina di Furore was a bustling small trade centre thanks to its
location sheltered from pirates and foreign attacks. Water was readily available, which
favoured flour and paper production. Today, Marina di Furore is a renewed village
devoted to fishing.
Some Romans looking for shelter from the Barbarians attacks
settled at the bottom of the fjord, a huge crack in the rocks of the Lattari Mountains. At present, part of the village sits 300 meters up on top of the mountain. It is not one of the most
important towns of the area and it is not visited much by tourists, therefore it has kept
a country-like flavour, blending its multicolour walls with modern art.
