The social realities in the south-east of Sila National Park: Cotronei, Mesoraca, Petilia Policastro, Savelli in the Province of Crotone

The author highlights the importance of the safeguard of the environment, focusing in particular on wild deforestation activities (80 years ago, an public movement dealing with this issue was born against the Società Forestale per il Mezzogiorno, SOFOME).
It is with pride that the volume highlights the important role played by the Park Authority in the recovery of the woodland and its essences: fir trees, beech trees, pine trees. Fascinating place offering wellness and emotions, also thanks to its several springs and its lakes Cecita, Arvo, and Ampollino. A place of solitude and contemplation, where monastic communities settled. There are evidences of the presence of Greek-Byzantine, Florense, and Cistercian monasticism. Also a place characterized by a flourishing mountain economy, thanks to the richness of the water and its driving force used for sawmills, mills, and presses, favoring the work of man. Man and Nature, in a relationship of harmony and interaction.
