Starting from the Paleolithic era, throughout the centuries, many have been the people that have lived in this territory, which has gifted it with the peculiar mix of cultures and traditions that it’s known for today. Following one another, Greeks and Romans have crossed the area, followed by Lombards, Saracens, Byzantines, Normans and Spanish. After Italian Unification, the area has been characterized, same as the rest of the South, by a heavy migration to America.
