I stumbled on this photo, it's on the box of an old issue of a software map of Italy. I suppose the location portrayed is in Italy, anyone?


"location portrayed" means that I'm interested in what is shown in the picture (a hill-top village) and not as much in the location from which the photo was taken.

  • It sort of looks familiar to me. It could have been a stage-finish in the Giro years ago. I'm sort of reminded of arial footage of the landscape while watching the cycling on TV.

  • @tonny Exactly: this May the 6th stage ascended to the top before reaching the finish line in Ascoli Piceno.

The other answers are right, it's Castelluccio di Norcia in Umbria, Italy, seen from a hill southwest of it called Monte Valletta.

There's a Google Street View photo by Gabriele Lorenzini which is taken very close to the location of your picture:

    Of the previous answers, one is right but unsubstantiated, the other one is incorrect (it's Monte Veletta with 2 "e"'s, as you correctly wrote) and incomplete, because I am not interested in the shot location but in the (main) subject of the photo. So, I'd say yours is the first correct, complete, substantiated answer and I could accept it if the poster of the first correct answer won't succeed in providing an explanation of their answer. PS: It's Castelluccio di Norcia, Italy has plenty of other "Castelluccio"s :-)

    Thank you for the correction. Spelling is indeed important, you might end up in an entirely different part of Italy...

Yes, that is in Monte Veletta in Italy. The original picture is this one:

It's Castelluccio di Norcia as seen from Monte Veletta, probably before the 2016 earthquake.
