Calabria Territory
The geographical position of Calabria is favourable, at the beginning of its history two thousand years ago, when Greeks dominated commerce of Mediterranean Sea the zone becomes essentially territory of conquest. In fact other maritime states as Liguria, Calabria does not gets advantage, its confirmed because of its four important zones have been situated inside of it. The physical characteristics of Calabria are not propitious. More than 91% of its territory is formed by mountains and hills, these a little expanded (49.3%). The plain zones (8.9%) are limitated by long and tight coasts sometimes marsh. Its affected by earthquakes. In correspondence with Calabria the Italian peninsula is oriented from north-west to south-east due south-west almost glued with the near Sicilia, at the tight point in correspondence with the canal of Messina the calabrian and Sicialian coasts are distant 3 kilometres.
The relieves of Calabria include at north the meridional mountainside of Pollino (“Serra Dolcedorme”, 2267 m), where finishes at Appennino mountain “lucano” zone; beyond the marked line through Scalone (740 m) begins the Apennine “calabro”. This section of the Appennine is distinguished from all the others by rocks’ nature and morphology. In fact the crystalline and Palaeozoic formations have prevailed so different of those clayey and calcareous, dominating at Apennines. Besides the relief is characterized by rounded or real high plateau and finishes with an articulated chain becoming like a sequence of separated big blocks. On remote geological period calabrian mountain blocks formed islands and 200 millions of years ago this blocks where eroded by the time and forming sedimentary stratums. The mountain blocks more important and elevated are “La Sila” (1928 m) and “Aspromonte” (1955 m), respectively situated at oriental side and meridional side of calabrian peninsula. At Tyrrhenian side “La Sila” is encircled by a line “ Vallo (or valle) del Crati” and an inclined ocean ridge (called “Paolana” chain from the more important place Paola”, it is 70 kilometres long, culminates at “Cocuzzo” Mount (1544 m) that constitutes a compact wall and 1100 to 1300 meters of heightAt the South there is another depression that closes “La Sila” in correspondence with calabrian isthmus area breaking line of the peninsula it is 30 kilometres wide between “Sant’Eugemia” Gulf, at Tyrrhenian Sea, at Ionian Sea the “Squillace” Gulf, besides the isthmus (a real sea lough) the ground rises along a fringing line of 50 kilometres called “Le Serre (mount Pecoraro, 1423 m) arriving near of “Aspromonte”. Between mountain blocks and the coasts there is an uninterrupted serie of irregular hills constituted by calcareous rocks, are marked by watercourse that fall down when fully rivers, giving place to frequent havok phenomenon. erosion. In this way we can compare roundest profiles of mountain zones with Calabria steep and slope over all slidelands on hills. The coasts are developed for 780 kilometres and the state is 250 kilometres any other point of Calabria is more than 50 kilometres far away from the sea. The Tyrrhenian coasts arch on Squillace Gulf and Gioia Gulf and arrive the Canal of Messina and between these is “Capo Vaticano”; the Ionian coasts have the principal entrances, at Squillace Gulf and Taranto Gulf divided with state of Basilicata and Puglia. Despite the considerable evolution of the coasts; on Tyrrhenian zone peep out to the sea with balcony forms, the state does not have a good natural port.
Mostly the plain coasts end at the sea with a sandy and gritty stratum, that’s why in the precedent period the watercourses can not arrive to the sea and is necessary clearing up.At Tyrrhenian Sea the principal lowlands get respectively names from gulfs (lowlands of Santa Eufemia and of Gioia); the bigger zone of lowlands is at Ionian Sea and precisely lowland of Sibari (180 km2) formed of alluviums of Crati river and its affluent “Coscile”. Lowland comes from a name of a flourishing city founded by Greeks on VIII century B.C.
