Has anyone ever figured out what Sapienza is based upon?
So far the only one I’ve come close to, is La Spezia- but it is not entirely right. If my memory serves me right, someone at this forum once managed to find a picture taken from a boat that were a spitting image of Sapienza. I am curious to know which town that was.
I have been there 3 times. Totally different from the game.
It has bits of Sapienza here and there but it doesn’t come close to be as beautiful as it is in the game. Reality is often disappointing (get the Thanos pun?).
The town you are looking is called Vernazza.
Sapienza is fictional? Gotta be honest there, I didn’t know that. KInda weird considering so many real Locations like Paris, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Mumbai, Chongqing etc.
I mean it is obvious that Locations like Sgail, Haven or even Santa Fortuna are fictional, but Sapienza surprises me. (I know that WC Is fictional too, so that one is also still pretty clear, considering the fact that the Map is literally a Square.)
They can’t be touch because they are unesco heritage. They can’t even paint over or change the windows.
We have such rules in my area too, Garda lake.
In fact I was very disappointed when I went there the first time because I was really expecting to be if not like Sapienza at least better.
But it does have it’s charm and I will go there a 4th time someday. Maybe again for my birthday.
