1.Benvenuti al Sud
Both a sequel (of Welcome to the North) and a remake (of the French movie Bienvenue Chez Les Ch’tis), it was directed by Luca Miniero and released in 2010. Paolo Bisio plays the role of the main character Alberto, senior manager of a post office in Brianza (North Italy) who pretends having a grave disability in order to get a relocation. Unfortunately for him, his superiors spot the deception and he is sent in exile in a little town in Cilento, South Italy. The majority of scenes take place in the little square in front of Alberto’s new post office – in reality this square hosts a nice tiny bar called “La Piazzetta”. Filming took place in Cilento National Park, more specifically in the towns of Castellabate (nearby Salerno), San Marco and Santa Maria. Castellabate is Cilento’s main tourist attraction.
