Sapienza = Vernazza (real life counterpart)

Kinda off topic but it boggles my mind why all the places in HITMAN are real ones except Sapienza, this one is fictitious, I wonder why is that.

Sapienza and a town called Vernazza. Besides the villa it’s almost identical.

Oh my God.

It even has the church tower and the ruins… this is amazing. I need to go here. We all knew Sapienza was based off towns along the Amalfi Coast, but I had no idea a place existed that was almost exactly the same. Located in the province of La Spezia.

I can’t get over this. I need to go and stand on top of those ruins. And I’d fully expect to find an underground biotech lab too.

I wonder if the people who own those buildings get together and say “I’ll do pink, you do gold, Henry will make his blue…” :smile:

But I do wonder, how do the game designers find such beautiful places? They must consult a travel agent or something.

Caruso villa is literally built on thin sheet of rock. Underneath is a huge cave.

There are usually laws that forbid painting one’s house certain colours (too bright, too eye-catching, etc). Those houses must have been painted like that before those laws.

Hitman SA Terminal Hospitality is based on Golden temple from Amritsar city in Punjab, India.
There is no hospital there though.

I’ve read that originally many towns did this to make the coast more visible to sailors in foggy and dark conditions.
Also, now I’m reading more about it, some fishermen like to look to the coast and see their own home from the sea.
Whatever,… it looks beautiful. :slight_smile:

Likely lots and lots of google searches. There is a comment on Reddit saying IOI mentioned in a livestream they used google earth while creating the map.

I know it’s been a while since your comment but I went to the Cinque Terre recently. Unfortunately I didn’t visit Vernazza but it is definitely something everyone should do. It’s so beautiful.

As far as I know the first mission of hbm is based on some amusement pier park in USA.
