About Rocca Calascio
The solitary fortress, built in the 10th century, today looks like it has grown out of the hilltop stone and became an integral part of the mountain itself. It was first built as a single tower but over the course of centuries it was expanded and, at one point, even a small village sprung up around its walls but it was destroyed in an earthquake and the fortress was abandoned. Today, the rigorous fortress is a precious filming location and 3 movies were filmed here: Lady Hawke, The Name of the Rose and The American.
