    nature defends itself from us (from wild civilization), I think, in my part there are no more four seasons, or torrid summer from May to October / November, then wind torrential rain wind, tornadoes universal floods ... little snow ... tropical temperate Mediterranean climate, we are repairing the damage. miles of beautiful beach have disappeared. unfortunately, the companies that build cliffs are doing gold business, transporting and placing boulders and barriers, if you want to make a lot of money come to Calabria with dredgers and pontoons to build barriers and breakwaters, you will go home covered in gold ...

    from our taxes as taxpayers, of course as I also believe in you and in all civil places, it must be said that out of pure speculation and squandering public funds along the coasts they have built ports of tourist harbors, give them docks, useless designed poorly executed worse and located in unsuitable places, you tell me that the ports must be built where there is an inlet a gulf a cove a natural area that is suitable for this purpose (if you build the breakwater in the wrong place, this diverts the sea current and causes coastal erosion). instead we do useless works to speculate, the usual corruption all over the world is country. now we find ourselves without beaches, the countries near the sea in danger every time there is a storm or bad weather.

    if it happens come to visit us, we have few economic resources. but you eat well people are affable and friendly, the place is lovely, if you don't have too many demands. who is satisfied enjoys.

    the place is very picturesque, but little exploited in tourism, we have few economic resources to invest unfortunately.
