About Me

The Municipality of Corigliano-Rossano, hereafter CoRo, is a local public body, located in Calabria region, South Italy.  It is the third biggest city in Calabria, counting ;

The city consists of 5 main urban areas located within the Sibari Plain.

For its position enclosed between two national parks of Sila (Unesco Biosphere Reserves) and Pollino (UNESCO Global Geopark) and the Gulf of Corigliano, it plays a strategic role in the Mediterranean area as commercial hub between Apulia and Sicily and between the east coast of the Ionian Sea and Europe.

The two medieval historic centers, suspended on hills with warm colors and intense scents, are testimony to the important historical role played in the Byzantine and Norman times mainly. Relevant treasures are preserved here such as the several Byzantine masterpieces (as the X-XI century churches of Panaghia, St. Mark, Abbey of Patir and the fresco of the Achiropita) and noble palaces.
