VIBO VALENTIA
Nowhere can you find a more lively and varied landscape. The large number of walks that could be taken across these wide plains, the great variety of the surrounding countryside and the wonderful climate should make of Monteleone a delightful country residence.
Henry Swinburne, Travels in the Two Sicilies in the years 1777-1780, 1783
Tropea
TROPEA – (VV)
The romantic Tropea, with its crenellated walls, its medieval towers, its luxuriant vegetation and its mountains full of crevasses, it looked like a true magical portrait.
Elpis Melena, In Calabria and the Aeolian Islands in the year 1860, 1862
Pentidattilo
PENTIDATTILO – (RC)
The Marquis Alberti, struck by the Baron Abenavoli felt beside the wall, and his five bloody fingers left traces that can still be seen in a wall of the ruined room, a horrible memory of the crime that strangely coincides with that of the shape and name of the fortress.
Edward Lear, Diary of a Journey on Foot.Reggio Calabria and its province, 1847
Gerace
GERACE – (RC)
The beautiful touch of Gerace is its admirable colour; the white or the delicate gray of the steep rocks, the gray colour of the buildings which contrasts beautifully with the purple of the mountains.
Edward Lear, Diary of a journey on foot.Reggio Calabria and its province, 1847
Catanzaro
CATANZARO – (CZ)
The upper part of the city that seems to want to free itself from the hilly slope on which its houses rest, and perhaps desires of blue and green dreams, tends to spread out, going up with its buildings, still high, towards the presila mountains which then darkly blue degrade until , little by little, to reach the silent waters of the classic Gulf of Squillace. It is always nice to see this garden, in the warm autumn afternoons and in the aulent springs, in the cool summer mornings and in the bright winter days […].
Giovanni Pascoli, letter sent to the Municipality of Catanzaro, 1899
Staletti
VASCHE DI CASSIODORO – STALETTI’ (CZ)
You also have the sea so close that it lends itself to various types of fishing, and the fish you catch can be poured into the nurseries as you please. With the help of the Lord, we have in fact built pleasant fish nurseries, where many fish roam within a safe barrier, made suitable by the presence of mountain caves, so the fish does not feel prisoner at all, being able to feed freely and hide in their usual caves […].
Cassiodoro, Institutiones, XXIX, 552-561 d.C.
Crotone
CROTONE – (KR)
It is said that, with a multitude of Spanish oxen, Ercole, after a happy journey, came from the ocean to Capo Lacinio and that, leaving the herd to roam on the tender meadows, entered the hospitable house of the famous Crotone, placating with his rest under that roof, his immense toil; and then leaving he said: “At the time of our grandchildren, here a city will rise”.
Ovidio, Metamorfosi, XV, I sec. d.C.
Le Castella
LE CASTELLA, ISOLA CAPO RIZZUTO – (KR)
From above, beautiful reflections appeared in the sea, Capo Rizzuto that ends in a point on the sea, flat and Le Castella, the town that is located in front of the Cape. But as you get closer, you see Le Castella clearly without reflection anymore. I was able to observe, as I have already noticed other times, that the sea inlet, if you find yourself observing it from one side, you have the impression that it penetrates the mainland more deeply than it appears from the observation of the geographic map so much that the map seems to you, in this regard wrongly and inaccurate.
Justus Tommasini, Passeggiata per la Calabria, 1825
Cosenza
COSENZA – (CS)
Cosenza has interests and spectacular beauties that make it tempting to shoot it all day. It is inappropriate to call it picturesque; at every step, from the beginning of the main road at the foot of the hill to the severe medieval castle that crowns the top, there is something to be surprised and admired.
George Gissing, By the Ionian Sea, 1901
Sibari
PARCO ARCHEOLOGICO DI SIBARI – (CS)
The name of Sibarys is endowed with an evocative power that no other memory in the Italian world can boast: evocative of an extraordinary opulence and refinement and a citizenship capable of enjoying it.
Giovanni Pugliese Carratelli (1911-2010)
