Writing this Cosenza/Calabria/Donnici Superiore/Piane Crati page is going to be a bit overwhelming for me. Not because they are huge tourist towns with millions of things to do, but because this is where my family comes from, and this is one of the main reasons I wanted to visit Italy. It's going to take me some time to put up all the pictures, write the tips and link everything together. I hope to make this page excellent. Not a lot of people visit the Southern part of Italy unless they have family from there, so I want to represent it well. Please keep coming back. It will get better! :)

Even though I was born in Canada, it was so interesting to see my roots and see where my family came from. Cosenza has about 70,000 people, and including all the tiny neighboring villages there are about 200,000 people in the area. My family comes from two of the tiny villages - Piane Crati and Donnici Superiore. It's a very hard feeling to describe, and I want to do them justice.

I will absolutely improve this page very soon. I just want to get it right and find the right words to describe it, but I wanted to put up some sort of intro for now.

    Regarding your beautiful photo of "The Cathedral" in Cosenza, Calabria...... What do they call this (what is the name of) cathedral?

    Just stopped by for another little visit to this page. It must have been great to visit your ancestral village. Did you find any relatives still living here?

    Always great to visit one's ancestral village. I visited mine in China too :)
