Some artists eventually went to see the birthplace of their models and found Anticoli a very picturesque site to the point of living there for some time. The town attracted artists until World War II. Anticoli and some of the neighbouring towns (shown in this page) were portrayed in many paintings. Anticoli can be reached from Tivoli following Via Tiburtina Valeria.Stanley Kramer's The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969) was almost entirely shot here.Main sightsChurch of St. Peter (11th century)Palazzo Baronale (17th century)Piazza delle Ville, with a fountain by Arturo MartiniCivic Museum of Modern Art, housing works by artists connected to the town, such as Oscar Kokoschka, Felice Carena, Paolo Salvati, and others.Demographic evolutionTwin towns Arcos de la Frontera, SpainReferences
