Your experience in Reggio Calabria inevitably starts with the National Archaeological Museum, which is considered one of the most representative museums of Magna Graecia in Italy and worldwide hosting the famous ‘Bronzes of Riace’. This year marks the 50th anniversary of their discovery in the bay of Riace. The precious statues of the two warriors are today considered among the most significant sculptural masterpieces of Greek art. The Museum, however, holds many other treasures, and the visit will reveal itself as a journey through history that will gradually reveal culture and traditions of this ancient and fascinating land.
You will then continue to the village of Cardeto where you will be welcomed by the host at the Taverna and challenge yourself in the art of making pasta.
Guided by women who are experts in this process, you will learn about the ingredients and, above all, the typical Aspromonte flours used for the dough, then the pasta shapes to be made, and finally everyone can try their hand at making their own portion. Afterwards, a typical Calabrian lunch will be served, all prepared with genuine local products and, finally, a visit to MEGA Ethnographic Museum of the Greeks of Aspromonte, which is adjacent to the tavern and houses pieces of our history and culture.
