Discovering the ancient civitas and the village

Outpost of the Great Greek civilization in Calabria, the ancient Skylletion, passed under the Romans with the name of Scolacium, a thriving city lived up to the decline of the Western Empire, when its inhabitants, moving to the hilly areas, gave rise to the medieval village.

The route winds through the areas of the Archaeological Park of the ancient Scolacium, which during the summer season becomes the theater of a singular combination of old and new, thanks to the installations of world-famous contemporary artists. The Roman ceramic art was handed down in the Middle Ages. In the small shops of the village of Squillace you can still see the working of the clay on the lathe. At a ceramic workshop, you will discover the secrets of production of the famous Squillace pottery, currently exhibited in some of the world’s major museums. The visit to the laboratory is flanked by that of the Norman Castle, whose size dominates the village and the valley in silence.

The excursion includes: Guided tour of the Park and the Archaeological Museum (entrance included) of Scolacium, visit of the Norman Castle (excluding admission ticket) and of the ceramic workshop in the medieval village of Squillace.
