TORNIMPARTE E IL RITORNO DI DON CAMILLO

In the station of Sassa-Tornimparte, in the province of L’Aquila, we find the film location used in the film “The Return of Don Camillo” by director Julien Duvivier in 1953. Railway station in the film is called “station Montenara” that is remote and the remote destination in the mountains where Don Camillo is sent as punishment after he was relieved of his duties as parish priest of his village. Here, in a cold environment, carries out his ministry in place frequented only by perpetual.
Another railway station Abruzzese was used as a film location in 1968 in the movie “Straziami but kisses saziami” by director Dino Risi. The location in question is Rivisondoli also in the province of L’Aquila, and is the location of the imaginary train station “Sacrofante Brands”, where the worker lives Marisa Di Giovanni (Pamela Tiffin), and where the barber Balestrino Marino (Nino Manfredi) travels to revise the woman with whom he fell in love.
