Calabria is presently divided into three administrative areas based around its largest cities: Catanzaro, the capital, in central Calabria; Cosenza, the cultural capital, north-west from Catanzaro; and Reggio di Calabria, the former capital and largest city located in the south.
Reggio's climate is distinctly Mediterranean and its brown and yellow colours interspersed with the green of orange, olive and eucalypt trees and the smoke from an occasional bushfire make it a little reminiscent of rural Australia.
Reggio also has a distinct Third World feel to it: it is dirty; it is crowded with motor vehicles and people jostling for possession of the roads; it lacks the wealth obvious in other parts of Italy, including in Messina just thirty minutes across the water from Reggio.

 Reggio di Calabria Tourist Information and Travel Guide at InfoHub.com
REGGIO DI CALABRIA, the provincial capital, was one of the first ancient Greek settlements on the Italian mainland, and today, with a population of over 180,000, is the town in the region that shows most evidence of urban decline - an untidy mix of heavy industry, slum housing, and pot-holed streets.
Much of Reggio's air of shabby neglect has its roots in deep-seated social problems, specifically the stranglehold that the Calabrian Mafia, or 'ndrangheta, continues to have on the town.
Closely linked to the 'ndrangheta' s the city is the high rate of unemployment in the province (20-30 percent), which has provoked a general attitude of scepticism and indifference towards any attempt to improve the situation.

The city is situated on the slope of the Aspromonte, at the extreme end of the peninsula, communicating with Messina by a line of ferries.
When all Southern Italy was united to the Patriarchate of Constantinople, Reggio became a metropolitan see with thirteen suffragans, and followed the Greek Rite, which was changed to the Gallican after the Norman Conquest; Archbishop Ricciulli adopted the Roman Rite in 1580.
The Greek Rite, however, remained in force in the church of Santissima Maria della Cattolica, built by King Roger, and governed by a protopope with a numerous Greek clergy.
