Culture and Interest
Ingrid Bergman Museum

A visit to the house where actress Ingrid Bergman and director Rosellini lived together throughout the shooting of the movie “Stromboli terra di Dio" is a must.
It was the spring of 1949; during the shooting, the two fell in love. It was the greatest scandal of the time and one of the most beautiful love stories ever told.
The cultural association Ingrid gives you the opportunity to visit those very places were the story began.

San Bartolomeo Church

San Bartolo’s church, built by the islanders to grant protection against the volcano eruptions, became the island agricultural centre, thanks to a mill built on its northern side. The building dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries and it is characterized by the façade red colour, its interior stucco and a statue of the saint enclosed in the façade. Built with the contributions of emigrants from Australia, Argentina, the United States, Canada and New Zealand; it was closed in 2002 in the aftermath of a strong quake, to be reopened in 2013 following restoration. The church is located in the area of Piscita; reachable from Scari by taxi or by foot.
