A Mediterranean Journey. Itineraries to discover hidden Calabrian treasures and short breaks in Calabria “A Mediterranean Journey. Itineraries to discover hidden Calabrian treasures and short breaks in Calabria” was created for the enhancement and enjoyment of the historical and landscape resources of Calabria but also to save its monuments and archaeological sites from physical and spiritual abandon, promoting their protection and restoration by local authorities.
The aim of the project is to convey to our visitors the values which make up our identity – not only as Calabrians, but also as Southern Italians and Mediterraneans; to invest in our historical and cultural legacy; to contribute to the realization of our landscape heritage and archaeological history which must be recognized and safeguarded for future generations; to reveal wonders seen or unknown to mass-tourism; to make the authorities aware of its aim to save and restore our monuments and works of art.
In “A Mediterranean Journey” the trips that I propose have no “fixed framework” or “package deal” – they are, rather, suggestions, a choice of routes based on my own experiences to help select the itinerary and/or short break. In this way I cater for the subjectivity of each individual traveller and their personal choice of what to seek.
