Tropea, view from the sea
Summer has passed and Calabria still offers many opportunities for tourists; not just for sea and nature lovers, but also for devotees of culture and reading. The town of Vibo Valentia, the capital of the province which lies on the beautiful Tyrrhenian coast, hosts the "Tropea Festival Leggere&Scrivere" from October 21st to 26th: more than 100 meetings and 150 guests, including writers, philosophers, intellectuals, musicians and actors.
The festival which has now reached its third edition, offers a calendar full of meetings, debates, and workshops with an eye always focused on literature and news, together with events dedicated to music and rich local food and wine, through concerts and tastings, but also reflections on the relationship between "words and music" and between "food, nutrition, anthropology and philosophy".
The event mainly takes place in the ancient heart of Vibo Valentia, in the majestic Palazzo Gagliardi, but also visits Tropea, the characteristic location overlooking the sea which gives its name to the festival, on October 22nd. It then continues with a series of events that take place in the surrounding area, thus offering interesting itineraries for discovering the archaeological and artistic wonders of Calabria in Sorano, Diocesano and Serra San Bruno.
