Villaggio Coppola (also known as Pinetamare[1]) is a place in the Italian region of Campania, administratively a frazione of Castel Volturno in the Province of Caserta.

Geography[edit]

The town is located on tyrrhenian coast, between Castel Volturno, Lago Patria (hamlet of Giugliano) and Villa Literno. Its distance is 27 km from the city of Naples.

History[edit]

The village was built in later '60s of 20th century as a touristic multifunctional center by Vincenzo and Cristoforo Coppola.[2] Denouncements for partial destruction of natural environment in the area, made by WWF and some local authorities, started in 1975. First demolition of abusive building started in 1999[3] and there are some hypothesis to convert the village as a part of a natural reserve.
