Vintage Movie – The Godfather Bar

Fresh Classics | 355 views

Today we’ll talk about The Godfather, a timeless masterpiece. Once upon a time, Michael Corleone sat on the shady terrace of a local Sicilian bar after a day of hunting with his bodyguards in the mountains. He began to enquire with the bar owner about a beautiful girl he had seen by the roadside.

Mr. Corleone’s bodyguards returned with the newly enlightened bar tender and he begrudgingly agreed to a meeting where he would no doubt be swayed to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to the Godfather– an offer he can’t refuse!

Savoca, a quiet town in the Province of Messina in the Italian region Sicily, located east of Palermo, was the location for the scenes set in Corleone of Francis Ford Coppola‘s The Godfather.

Bar Vitelli in Savoca, which is still a functioning establishment, was featured in the motion picture as the place where Michael Corleone asked the father of his doomed bride to be, Apollinia, to help arrange the match.
