Although Calabria is a region overlooking two seas, which belong to a single large sea, the Mediterranean, it is also partly a mountainous land. A particular landscape variety, diversity and multiculturalism: these are the terms to which we must refer when talking about Calabria and the Mediterranean. Because after all, the Mediterranean is the duality of its own name, it finds its most true and intimate elements in plurality. It is characteristic of the entire Mediterranean area to group together, and bring together, in combination and contrast, many aspects of reality.
And this is even more true in a land like Calabria which represents a paradigm or rather a sort of microcosm of the Mediterranean, since it contains in itself a mixture of cultures, traditions and plurality of thoughts, in which it seems difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish the individual contributions of the various cultures that belong to it (Greece, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Spaniards, French, Bourbon kingdom).
