The painted village


The village Furore, one of the most beautiful villages (hamlets) of Italy,  is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy , located in the Coast of Amalfi. It is commonly known as “the hidden beauty of Neverland”. The village has a long history and tradition, but until few years ago, it wasn’t observed on any map. There is no central square, and the village is hidden from the open sea . All that  you will see riving on the state road SS166 is the Fjord for which the village is famous  but you will never see the village.
