Regione Calabria
The public government of Region Calabria is strongly involved in the tourism and in the development of the senior population in its new opportunity of expression of the vitality and personality . The old approach of assistance is going to be overcome by the policy of enhancement, performed directly through the Social Assistance and indirectly through the support to ANCESCAO (partner of the project) and the independent associations. Tourism combines a great variety of scenarios, from the long sandy and sunny coasts of the Ionio and Tirreno seas, to the high mounts of the Pollino, to the wooded plateaus of Sila and Aspromonte, to the cities of art (Cosenza, Reggio Calabria) and to the old villages of Gerace, Rossano, Altomonte,Morano, and seaside such as Diamante,Tropea , San Nicola Arcella...
