Information about CATANZARO Catanzaro was a very important colony for the Greek expansion in the 8th century B.C. After the second Punic War, the whole region, Calabria , was conquered by the Romans subdued to the domination of the Goths, the Byzantines and the Longobards. The Dominations of the Norman (1059-1198) and of the Swede (1214-1266) are at the basis, still today, of the Nordic features that can be found (blue eyes and blonde hair) in this southern featured population. Catanzaro is known for its food processing enterprises, including pasta and olive oil.Catanzaro, chief town of the region Calabria, rises on a series of necks that appear on the Ionio. Above all it is agricultural and commercial center, little are the industries. All year is perfect to visit the province: in autumn when the forests of beeches dye of red, in winter when the spacious pastures are covered of snow and in the spring-summer period when the cost is illuminated from a clear and blue sea. The economy of the province is based essentially on the agriculture and on the commerce, even if very developed are also the fishing, the breeding and the handicraft activity.
