Aosta Valley can boast to have provided all the Italian locations of Avengers, the Age of Ultron, the awaited sequel of the Marvel superheroes hitting theatres on 22nd April 2015. Many of the sequences of the movie’s official trailers feature Forte di Bard, the majestic fortress built in XIX century by the Savoy royal family, now hosting museums and exhibitions.
Fort Bard (see Photogallery) has been chosen as the headquarters of HYDRA, the arch-enemy of the S.H.I.E.L.D. This is Baron von Strucker’s outpost, helped by the superpower-twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. This is also the castle of the film’s villains, where Ultron works out his evil plan to destroy the Earth.
You will discover not only Forte di Bard, but also all the ‘marvelous’ locations all over Aosta Valley, where the director-writer Joss Whedon shot his movie in March 2014.
