From “Vampire” of Boris to the love story of Cleopatra
The island is not only a natural beauty, far away from the continental and civil world, but these places have been visited by illustrious characters of literature, theater, music and especially cinema.
Many movies have been shot on the island, from the far away 1945 when Boris Karloff disembarked here to shoot “Vampire of the island”, and then in the after war, with the activities of Angelo Rizzoli and the presence of Luchino Visconti in Forio in his Villa “La Colombaia”, Ischia became ever since a “small cinematographic rock”, as was defined by Mario Mattoli, film director of many films of Totò.
In 1949, Ischia was the set for two films: “Il Mulatto” to which took part Giuseppe Morelli, and “Campane a martello” with Eduardo De Filippo and Ivonne Sanson. Two years later, Anna Magnani participated in “The Awakening” of Mario Camerini. While in 1954, for “The Crimson Pirate” arrived in Ischia Burt Lancaster and Nick Cravate.
Alain Delon came to Ischia in 1959 for “Purple Noon” filmed between Ischia Ponte and the historic Palace D’Ambra”. In the same year Victorio De Sica, Peppino De Filippo and Antonio Cifariello participated in “Holiday Island”.
Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia had their debut in Ischia in their first film” Date in Ischia” of Mattoli.
The most famous cinematographic experience in Ischia was “Cleopatra” interpreted by Liz Taylor and Richard Burton that started sailing exactly under the sun of Ischia. The last film that deserves to be mentioned is “Avanti!” in 1972 of Billy Wilder.
