A World of Childhood Fantasy in Narni, Italy

For more enchanting photos and videos from Narni, Italy, explore the Narni location page and browse the #Narni hashtag.

There are stunning similarities between the real-life town of Narni and the fictional world of Narnia: blazing green hills, clear blue skies and picturesque stone structures.

In fact, the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, written by C.S. Lewis in 1950, is rumored to have been inspired by this small Italian town 50 miles north of Rome. According to biographer Walter Hooper, Lewis was fascinated by ancient history, and Narni—named “Narnia” in Roman times—was highlighted by the children’s author in his personal atlas.

Whether Lewis visited Narni has never been confirmed, but even today, its cobblestone streets and castle fortress look like they belong in a magical, medieval novel. And while there are no mythical, talking creatures roaming the land, Narni still feels like a place pulled straight out of our childhood imaginations.

Impressionist Jim Meskimen Reads His Original Poem ‘In Memory of Robin Williams’ In the Voice of Robin Williams

Robin Williams could handle a script, when he felt like it, and also think on his feet. He ad-libbed in many of his films and was just as quick in person. During a media tour for “Awakenings,” when director Penny Marshall mistakenly described the film as being set in a “menstrual hospital,” instead of “mental hospital,” Williams quickly stepped in and joked, “It’s a period piece.”

—The man had a quick wit!  He will be missed.

Hvítserkur by Harpa Hrund on Flickr.
Hvitserkur is a rock that protrudes out of the sea in the western part of the Huna Bay in Iceland. The sea erosion has carved holes through its foundations. Hvitserkur, which translates to “white shirt” derives its name from being covered in Shag and Cormorant guano, rises 15 metres, or nearly 50 feet from the sea. - Harpa Hrund
