The Strada Regia delle Calabrie


Luca Esposito's book illustrates a faithful , geo-referenced cartographic reconstruction of the longest road in southern Italy , as depicted on the Atlas of the Kingdom of Naples between the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century.

From Naples to Castrovillari the road covers the distance of 143 Neapolitan miles. The “story” is divided into chapters, each chapter coinciding with a section of the postal itinerary at the end of the eighteenth century .

The Liber @ mente association of Castelluccio Inferiore supports the author's work. The supporting members of the association receive a copy of the book .

It is possible to join the association at the Il Triangolo Cartolibreria in Via Roma 167, Castelluccio Inferiore.

Local Regeneration and Resistance Plan

Defend against planned depopulation

by Francesco Bevilacqua

Countries such as Cerchiara di Calabria, Plataci and San Lorenzo Bellizzi share a single fate: the " emptying ".

This is a solution of convenience and dictated by profit. In fact, it does not take into account the arduous battles of those who, born and raised in countries and countryside especially in the internal area of Italy, do not intend to abandon their land for  pursuing the "urban myth".


Francesco Bevilacqua opposes resistance to the "planned depopulation" by promoting the local regeneration and resistance plan.
