Calabria, also known as Bruttium in antiquity, is a region in Southern Italy sitting on the “toe” of Italy’s fabulous boot-shaped peninsula. The area boasts of having an exquisitely warm and sunny climate and beautiful scenery that captivates the imagination. It is no surprise that many notable people from Italy were born in Calabria including famous film directors, sculptors, painters, composers, scientists, religious officials, and many others.
The southern region of Calabria sits under the Basilicata region. To the west of Calabria is the Tyrrhenian Sea, and to the east of Calabria is the Ionian Sea. The region of Calabria has a population of just under two million. A fascinating current fact about Calabria is that in 2010, an area in Sila National Park was discovered to have the cleanest air in the whole of Europe!
