The Adriatic Sea, located on the east coast between Dalmatian and Kvarner islands in Croatia, is the setting of the film Porco Rosso.
Much of the film Porco Rosso, save for when Porco went to Milan, takes place in the Adriatic Sea, between Italy and the former Yugoslavia. Porco lived on an island on the Croatian shoreline of the Adriatic Sea.
At first, Hayao Miyazaki planned to set the story in Dubrovnik, Croatia. However, Miyazaki was shocked by the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, which started while he was making Porco. As a result, the tone of story became a bit more serious than he intended (at first it was supposed to be "a fun movie for middle-aged businessmen whose brains became tofu from overwork"), and he moved the story out of Croatia.
