Southern Italy


 

Southern Italy, we must remember, is a non statistical geographical and historical term referring to all the South of Italy, comprising the two major islands of Sicily and Sardinia and should not be confused with South Italy which is defined for statistical and electoral purposes and does not include the two islands of Sicily and Sardinia which are referred to as Insular Italy (Italia Insulare).
 


The term Mezzogiorno first came into use in the 18th century and is an Italian rendition of meridies (Latin for 'south', because of the sun's position at midday in the Northern Hemisphere) hence the name "Meridione" .

The word “meridionali”, which can be translated literally as “southerners”, also has a pejorative connotation, rather than a geographical one, and is associated with notions of poverty, illiteracy and crime: stereotypes of the South that often persist to this day.

 

- The Regions -

Glimpse of Southern ltaly  - Visitors to southern ltaly find a rich array of archaeological remains. 
 
 
Although the Roman ruins at  Pompei are the most famous of all, Greek ruins are found in Sicily and the southern coast , not to mention Sardinia's mysterious ancient structures called nuraghe.  
 
 
The regions of CampaniaPuglia, and Sicily are admired for their architecture, while breathtaking landscapes, wildlife, and endless opportunities for outdoor activities can be found across other southerner regions such as  Abruzzo, Molise,  Basilicata, Calabria and Sardinia
 
 
In our virtual tour , we  will try to make perceptible and tangible to visitors the complexity of the landscape while unveiling the charm and mystery of Southern Italy's long history.
 

A history often sparkled with tales of myths and legends, gods and goddess and most important,  the never ending quest to find a co-existing and productive balance with the harsh surrounding environment, waving over the centuries, the backdrop of our traditions and cultural heritage.

 
Lets get to know each other better !
 
Our mission : Guide the discerning traveler deeper into Southern Italy little places, the odd nooks and crannies that are largely unprofitable to write about, and along the way, introduce our visitors to our people, our traditions, our folklore & products of those places we will be "visiting".​​
