Curiosities about Calabria

You know the famous "Riace Bronzes" that you have seen pictures of and read about countless times in your art history books? Lo and behold, it was in Calabria that these two magnificent masterpieces of ancient Greek art were found, the making of which dates back to the classical age.

But Calabria is not only linked to the Greek tradition from an artistic-cultural point of view. In fact, if you are a lover of classical literature, you will well know that it was from the shores of the Strait of Messina, between Calabria and Sicily, that the ship of one of the most insatiable souls of knowledge passed, during his return voyage to his home, the island of Ithaca: Ulysses, the personification of ingenuity but also of deception, the multifaceted Greek hero.
