The ancient name of Furore was Terra
Furoris because during the stormy nights the noise
of the sea was actually very loud. Furore is
a very small town situated in the homonymous fiord.
It develops on the beach and along the slopes of Lattari
Mountains (the town can’t be seen from the main road
of Amalfi Coast).
In this town there are no squares or widenings. The two
parts of the towns were linked by a very long staircase,
built during the period of the Repubblica marinara. During
the past the fiord was inhabited by fishermen, then it was
abandoned but it has been recovered for some years.
The fiord is attainable by the road 163 that links Amalfi
to Positano. At a certain point the road goes down towards
the sea, to the wonderful fiord. In this place Roberto Rossellini,
the great film director set the episode "Miracolo" with Anna
Magnani and Federico Fellini in the movie "Amore" (1948).
