Stilo

STILO


Stilo rises at the feet of Mount Consolino on the Ionian side of Serre. The origin seems to refer to Greek colony “KAULON”. The place name derives from Greek “stylos”, column. Between X and XI century the arrival in the Stilaro’s valley of Byzantine monks gives a new impulse at the connection to the Greek world.

The first certain news dates back to 982, when Byzantine allies of Arabs defeated Ottone II of Sassonia. In 1072 Normans arrived in the place and the village was enriched with the construction of Duomo and Castle. Under the Normans, Stilo became “leadership city” and it expanded its jurisdiction on the hamlet of Guardavalle, Camini, Stignano, Riace and Pazzano. This status was later confirmed by Swabian, Angevin and Aragonese.

In 1811 Stilo led a district that included the municipalities of Pazzano, Placanica, Stignano, Camini, Riace, Bivongi and Monasterace.

It is famous for being the birthplace of Tommaso Campanella, the author of “The city of the sun” and of the painter Francesco Cozza, pupil of Domenichino. Outside, the points of interest are MANGIATORELLA known for the namesake source and the iron and steel complex FERDINANDEA erected in 1833 at the behest of Ferdinando II of Bourbon.
