The Calabria region
During the Byzantine period, Calabria was subjected to a territorial division. The Longobards, in fact, took control of Cosenza, annexing the Brutian city to the duchy of Benevento.
At the time of its maximum decline, the region was swiftly conquered by the Normans in the second half of the eleventh century, heralding a period of peace and safety also from the frequent Saracen raids. Later, as power passed from the hands of the Angevins to the Aragonese and the Spanish, Calabria became part of the Kingdom of Naples, thus destined to the same fate.
During this period, the region was completely abandoned, while the introduction of latifundium contributed to its further impoverishment. The numerous revolts and uprisings produced no positive results, and the persecution of the Waldensian religious movement led to a veritable massacre. The great thinkers of the time, such as Tommaso Campanella and Bernardino Telesio, condemned the Spanish excesses. A new interest in Calabria arose with the Bourbons, but the famine of 1764 and the earthquake in 1783 struck a severe blow to the social fabric and the very weak economy of the region. The Bourbons attempted to seize the enormous wealth that had been accumulated by the Church, and the “Cassa Sacra” was founded, whose role was to invest the proceeds from the sale of church property to create employment.
However, results were disappointing. In the eighteenth century the first real factory was built in Calabria, it was the “Mongiana and Ferdinandea” weapons factory in the Sierras of Catanzaro. It can be said that the first attempt to exploit the region's resources was made in the Bourbon period. At the end of the eighteenth century and in the Risorgimento era, the Calabrians took an active role: they participated in the Neapolitan Republic of 1799 and in the secret societies for the unification of Italy.
The Carbonarist movement was very active, especially in Cosenza, the scene of the 1837 and 1844 revolts, which coincided with the attempted landing of the Bandiera brothers. In 1860 the whole of liberal Calabria supported Garibaldi and the unification of Italy.
After this was achieved, there was widespread hope for change, but a new curse plagued the region: brigandage. Soon after, the First World War was looming on the horizon, and Calabria also gave its contribution of human blood and lives.
Giaio Tauro is an ideal base for your holiday, and convenient for many excursions such as day trips to resort town of Capo Vaticano(45 Km away), to beautiful Tropea (50 Km away), to Reggio Calabria for the museum and shopping (50 Km away), to Historical Scilla (40 Km), to Villa S. Giovanni - for ferry boat to Messina,Sicily (45 Km), to Calabrian Jonian coast (only 40 minute drive on new Rosarno Siderno highway) or to Zomaro (mountain).
One of the smaller Greek centers along the tirreniche coasts: founded from the Calcidesi di Zancle (Messina puts into effect them) and then probably last in orbit of Locri and the Medma neighbor, Matauros decayed and scomparve before the roman conquest. The archaeological testimonies of Matauros regard the necropoli archaic in contrada Stone (VII and VI century a.C.) that it has supplied many data on the commerce and the culture of this city.
Between the funerari equipments more ancients (first half of the VII century a.C.), some show are gone and other typical objects of the aboriginal cultures associate to you with Greek materials: in the new center founded from the Greeks some aborigines lived also who for some time maintained to uses and traditions of the own original culture. The greater part of the interments is to incinerazione: the rests of the rogo often were collected in large are gone assign in origin to the baking of foods, and in some cases they were placed in great amphoras imported from several centers of Greece (Corinto, Atene, Samo, Chio, Shares, etc.) or from other areas of the Mediterranean (Etruria and fenici or punici centers) like containers of wines or valuable oils: The study of these amphoras supplies important news a lot on the marine commerce in Tyrrhenian in the VII and VI sec. a.C.
In many funerari equipments they are present is gone figured imports to you from Corinto, from Greece dell'Est the Rodi, Samo, etc etc), from the Attica. Others vases of the VII century. a.C. show luminosity relationships with the city-mother Zancle (Messina): several tombe to inumazione and incinerazione of the second half of VI century a.C. they contained vases to black figures, sayings "calcidesi", a lot probably produced in the Reggio neighbor, which represent the most remarkable production of vases figured I arched to us in Magna Greece. It is gone calcidesi recovered to Metauros comprise important mythical rappresentation like the blinding of Polifemo and the boar-shooting of Calidone.
