Castello Aragonese d'Ischia

4 June 2019

Filming of the series “L’amica geniale 2 - Storia del nuovo cognome (My brilliant friend - Story of a New Name)" in Ischia Ponte

The village of Ischia Ponte hosted, for the second year, the shooting of the Hbo-Rai series taken from the quadrilogy signed by Elena Ferrante, produced by Wildside with Fandango and directed by Saverio Costanzo and Alice Rohrwacher.


The Aragonese Castle was once again the background for some scenes in the series that has won over both readers and critics from around the world and is filmed in Campania in recent months: for our village a new dive in the '50s that moves the elderly and fascinates youngsters and tourists, with accurate sets and numerous extras in period costumes.


Here is the wonderful article written by La Repubblica journalist Pasquale Raicaldo.
