Vito is a thirty-year-old chef who has always been passionate about good cooking. After many important experiences abroad, he decided to start a new adventure. His cooking is based on the use of high quality ingredients, on the respect of the seasons, and on the use of local products. Another goal that is very important for the chef Vito is to work the food as less as possible in order to leave its freshness and its authenticity intact.
Furore is nestled between the mountains and the sea and it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. It is far from the chaos and smog of the big city, and it is perfect for those who want to spend a holiday of relaxation and tranquility. Furore is also known by the nickname of the country that does not exist, since there is not a real important center but just small groups of houses that sprout isolated from the ridges of the cliffs. Those who visit Furore can only admire the beauty of this town and its fiordo, one of the most picturesque in Italy, which has always been used as a natural harbor.
Very unique is the art gallery “en plein air” consisting in the “artistic walls”, graffiti, and sculptures that make Furore a “painted city”. In fact, going down the main road that runs through the town, you can admire the graffiti that have been painted on the walls of the houses and on the terraces, according to the case; to this day around fifty paintings have been carried out, and new ones are added every year.
Another important initiative is the “Balconata Furitana”, a special and unique kermesse that brings together art, culture, shows, wine and food, and solidarity. The Church of Santa Maria, house of one of the most important and prestigious ancient confraternities of Furore, is the venue where all the events are held. The church also includes a pre-Napoleonic cemetery and the Oratory of the Immacolata.
The Balconata Furitana is a journey of discovery of unknown cultures and artists that aims to promote these beauties by offering touristic and wine and food itineraries.
Those who visit Furore can’t miss the beauty of the Fiordo, one of the most picturesque and evocative fjords in Italy, that has always constituted a natural harbor where the ancient industrial activities, such as mills and paper mills, developed. The Fjord of Furore, a deep rift in the rock, ends with a cliff overlooking the sea, where there once lived a small fisherman’s community.
The main road goes above the fjord thanks to a 30 meters high bridge where, on the first Sunday of July, a stop of the Marmeeting (high diving world championship) takes place. During the last years, this event has grown attracting numerous visitors.
Finally, the last stop you can’t miss out on are the cantine (winery), Marisa Cuomo, one of excellent wines known worldwide. Don’t miss the guided tour of the cellars dig in rock, a one-of-a-kind place, and the amazing vineyards where the grapes grow attached to rock and exposed to the magical action of the sea and the sun of the Amalfi Coast. The visit ends with an excellent tasting where you will find all typical local products.
