Blue Route

Visual Arts and History

With the Blue Route you can travel through cultural visits to the historical centres and/or events related to art in general, where students will learn about historical events, art history, local history, local customs and traditions.

The festivals and events represent perhaps the highest aspect of Calabria’s cultural traditions and religious beliefs.


They are now handed down from generation to generation, thus creating a network of different cultures deriving from the ancient Greek, Byzantine French and Spanish civilizations.


The enormity of the number of these celebrations is due to the fact that each municipality in the region has at least one of them, usually represented by the feast of the patron saint or the protecting Madonna.

Over the years it has also become a real meeting place for the many tourists of this land.
