The beautiful town of Castel del Monte in the mountainous Italian region of Abruzzo was the location for several movies. When you enter the town you will see a sign that lists a whole bunch of them (see picture) but it is not complete. Besides some Italian movies that I don't know, there are also some well known examples. How about "The American" with George Clooney, or "Wonder Woman" (which is not on the sign)? After the shots, George Clooney actually spent more time in the region which was hit hard by an earthquake in 2009. Nearby L'Aquila's town center was nearly entirely destroyed. Clooney was one of many who put a lot of effort into collecting money for the rebuilding process.
