Reggio di Calabria

Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to embark on a journey through the enchanting city of Reggio di Calabria: – Reggio di Calabria is a city in southern Italy, located on the “toe” of the Italian peninsula and facing the island of Sicily across the Strait of Messina. It is the largest city and the capital of the Calabria region, as well as the seat of the Regional Council of Calabria¹. Reggio di Calabria has a long and rich history, dating back to the 8th century BC, when it was founded as a colony of Magna Graecia by the Greeks. It was later conquered by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Normans, the Swabians, the Angevins, the Aragonese, the Spanish, the Bourbons, and the Savoys, among others. Reggio di Calabria has witnessed many natural disasters, especially earthquakes, that have destroyed most of its ancient buildings and monuments. The most devastating ones occurred in 1783 and 1908, which reduced the city to rubble and killed thousands of people. Reggio di Calabria was rebuilt in a modern style, with wide boulevards, elegant mansions, and public gardens. The city is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, as well as its natural beauty and diversity. Reggio di Calabria is home to one of the most important archaeological museums in Italy, the National Archaeological Museum of Magna Graecia, which displays the famous Bronzes of Riace, two stunning Greek bronze statues that were found in the sea near the city in 1972. The museum also exhibits other artifacts from the ancient civilizations that inhabited the region, such as pottery, jewellery, coins, and sculptures. Reggio di Calabria is also famous for its waterfront, which offers a spectacular view of the Strait of Messina, the city of Messina, the mountains of Sicily, and the volcano of Mount Etna. The waterfront is a popular place for walking, relaxing, and enjoying the sea breeze. Along the waterfront, there are several attractions, such as the ruins of a Greek wall and a Roman bath complex, a statue of Athena, an homage to King Victor Emmanuel III, and a giant Australian fig tree with an impressive root system. Reggio di Calabria is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a diverse population and a lively cultural scene. It hosts many events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Bergamot Festival, the Fata Morgana Film Festival, the Reggio Calabria Jazz Festival, and the Madonna della Consolazione Procession. Reggio di Calabria is also a gastronomic destination, where visitors can taste the delicious local cuisine, based on fresh seafood, vegetables, cheese, and olive oil. Some of the typical dishes are swordfish rolls, eggplant parmigiana, nduja (a spicy sausage), and pignolata (a fried pastry with honey and chocolate). Reggio di Calabria is a city that combines ancient and modern, tradition and innovation, culture and nature. It is a city that welcomes and charms its visitors with its hospitality, beauty, and charm.
