Anticoli Corrado is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rome in the Italian region Latium, located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) northeast of Rome. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 932 and an area of 16.3 square kilometres (6.3 sq mi).[1]

Anticoli Corrado borders the following municipalities: Mandela, Marano Equo, Rocca Canterano, Roviano, Saracinesco.

Anticoli became known in the 19th century because its young inhabitants used to pose as models for the community of artists living near Piazza di Spagna. Some artists eventually went to see the birthplace of their models and found Anticoli a very picturesque site to the point of living there for some time. The town attracted artists until World War II. Anticoli and some of the neighbouring towns (shown in this page) were portrayed in many paintings. Anticoli can be reached from Tivoli following Via Tiburtina Valeria.

Stanley Kramer's The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969) was almost entirely shot here.
