Morano and Pollino Park
The town of Morano Calabro has very ancient origins. It is difficult to say when it was built. During the Roman Age it was an important station of the Roman Consular Road Popilia-Annia. During the Middle Ages, Morano was feud of R. Pappasidero, Fasanalla, Apollonio Morano, Morano Catanzaro, etc., and had an important Norman Castle which was subsequently renovated and enlarged in the 16th century by the Sansaverino Feudal Princes. From the beginning of the 17th century to the abolition of feudalism, Princes Spinelli from Scalea were the lords of the town: they too committed themselves to enhance the territory.
In the 19th century, Morano had 12,000 inhabitants. The silkworm industry, the wool industry, wood and iron processing, and the building industry flourished. There were pastures for cattle, goats, and horses. The waters of the river Cosciale, the ancient Sibari, were rich in wonderful trout.>>>
