  Crotone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1996 it became the capital of the newly established Province of Crotone.
Croton was then occupied by the Bruttii, with the exception of the citadel, in which the chief inhabitants had taken refuge; these, being unable to defend the place against a Carthaginian force, soon after surrendered, and were allowed to withdraw to Locri.
Crotone's location between the ports of Taranto and Messina, as well as its proximity to a source of hydroelectric power, favored industrial development during the period between the two World Wars.

Under the Angevins, with Caltabelotta's peace (1302), Crotone became the most crowded town in Calabria and thanks to its intense harbour activity, was an important commerce centre for numerous groups of foreign traders and housed the most important and powerful Jewish community in Calabria.
