The City

Furore, "the village that doesn't exist," is a scattered settlement clinging to the slopes of the Lattari Mountains, descending towards the sea. Its ancient name Terra Furoris derives from the particular fury of the waves that flowed into the Fjord, especially during stormy nights.

In ancient times, its fjord represented a natural harbor - but only in calm weather! - in which intense trade activities developed, and paper mills and mills were activated, powered by the waters of the Schiato stream.

Its hillside location, halfway up, offers breathtaking panoramic views.

Of particular charm is the so-called open-air gallery, consisting of over a hundred pictorial (murals) and sculptural works, created by artists from all over the world, transforming Furore into a 'painted village.'

Tourism development is in an advanced stage and focuses on the 'village-hotel' strategy, with widespread hospitality that enhances all available resources: environment, gastronomy, art, craftsmanship, culture. An ideal destination for cultured and conscious tourists.
