New Zealand Embassy Rome, Italy
On the Set with Frodo and Sam, waiting for Pandora
Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud, as the early Māori settlers called New Zealand, is still one of the most fascinating and untouched locations of our planet. New Zealand offers a variety of landscapes made of volcanic mountains, rocky coasts and sandy expanses with breath-taking sunsets on the Ocean.
Locations that have made appearances in many unforgettable films such as The Lord of the Rings, The Piano, The Last Samurai, The Chronicles of Narnia and most recently The Hobbit. Hollywood director James Cameron says the Avatar sequels will almost certainly be shot in New Zealand.
