Portorosso is the main location featured in Disney/Pixar's 2021 animated feature film Luca.

Background

Portorosso is a small town located on the Italian Riviera.

Luca Paguro spends his summer here hanging out with his new best friends Alberto Scorfano and Giulia Marcovaldo, and enjoying the Italian experience with gelato, pasta, and Vespa rides.

However, the town has a history of having a hatred against sea monsters, as there are art pieces (as well as the central fountain) dedicated to fisherman slaying said creatures. This causes Luca and Alberto's fun in Portorosso to feel threatened, as they are sea monsters themselves, and attempt to keep their secret identities hidden from the citizens.

Trivia

  • The name of this town was originally going to be the last name of the main protagonist.
  • The name of this town is a reference to Studio Ghibli's Porco Rosso, which the film will pay homage to.
  • Portorosso can be seen as an advertisement on a travel agency window in Pixar's previous film, Soul.
