A group of young foreign tourists, Brazilians and Argentines, have come to Altilia, municipality of the province of Cosenza, welcomed by the Mayor Pasquale de Rose and the Town Council, in the person of Deputy Mayor Valeria Russo and Councilor Cristian Bevacqua, as well as by the Municipal Councilors Giuseppe Aiello, Lucia Vecchio and the President of the Municipal Council Angela Nucci. The Mayor gave a warm welcome to the guests, who will stay in the ancient village of Savuto until the end of the year.
"An opportunity made possible following the relationships undertaken with associations that have guaranteed - underlined the mayor De Rose - the presence of these tourists in our municipality. A project, at the center of our action, to allow cultural and religious tourism, to send a message, not only in Italy and in Europe, but also in other continents, to welcome tourists and make known the natural beauties of our territories ".
“Thanks to our fellow citizens of Altilia and Maione who warmly welcomed these young people, making their homes available for rent. Our goal - argues the mayor - is being realized with a hotel project to host tourists, to attract significant presences that remain as long as possible in our territory. Among the young people present we register entrepreneurs, professionals, technicians, undergraduates. In these days, accompanied by the group of young people from the Civil Service, they will visit the Hermit Caves of San Francesco di Paola, the Hannibal Bridge, Federici Palace, the Savuto River, the caves of the "tufaceous stone" worked by the workers of the Altilia stonecutters. Hospitality, social integration, are fundamental elements that characterize our inhabited centers ".
After the presence of a group of Associations of the Calabria Region for a total of 50 people who have visited Altilia in the past few weeks, today there is the presence of these tourists from overseas. More will arrive in the next few days and Altilia is also planning to welcome a group of scouts who will stay here for a week.
“The City - concludes the Mayor De Rose - records once again with the facts, to be a reference for qualified presences who choose our territory not only for its natural beauties, but also for the quality services it offers to the community ".
