The ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo is located at the heart of the Valle d'Ampezzo in north-eastern Italy. In the early 1920s Ernest Hemingway became a trend setter in putting Cortina on the map when he first dropped in here to write one of his first published works. Little did he know that in the years to come his pretty mountain retreat would become a playground for the rich and famous.
During the 1950s and 60s, Hollywood superstars including Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn frequented the resort earning it the reputation of Salotto dei Famosi. The 'Frank Sinatra Suite' and 'Peter Sellers Suite' at the luxurious Cristallo Palace Hotel and Spa remain as constant reminders of Cortina d'Ampezzo's popularity during that era.
As well as serving as a desirable holiday destination for such celebrities the region also made it on to our television screens when film directors selected Cortina d'Ampezzo for scenes in a number of blockbuster movies. These included the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only, with Roger Moore and 'Cliffhanger' with Sylvester Stallone.
