Where it was filmed 'The Stolen Children'

The Stolen Children, directed by Gianni Amelio and winner of the Prix du Jury at the 45th Cannes Film Festival, tells the story of a carabiniere officer who is given the job of taking two children away from a mother unable to look after them. So begins Antonio’s search for an adequate place for the two children to stay, which takes them from Milan to Bologna, Rome and the hamlet of Bocale in Reggio Calabria until they finally reach Sicily.

Dominating the last stage of their journey is the landscape of the province of Ragusa, an area famous for its Baroque towns, as seen in the scene set in Noto outside the famous Cathedral of St. Nicholas. Other locations include the coastal areas of Scoglitti and Marina di Ragusa.
