An essential contact for getting to know the Re

Michele Pane Association

A poet originating from the hamlet of Adami, Michele Pane emigrated to the United States in 1901. His Calabria would remain that of his childhood, linked to humble, simple, straight-talking people intolerant of the arrogance of greedy and corrupt barons. The association set up the Museo urbano (Urban museum), an itinerary hallmarked by Adami’s roots, houses and locations that still recount beautiful stories.

Le Mulina Restaurant

A beautiful establishment in a green setting, with a swimming pool. The cuisine offers flavours that are a perfect expression of the ingredients. The house antipasti with vrasciole (croquettes) and courgette fritters are excellent; don’t miss the homemade pasta with sausage and bell pepper ragout, and the legendary grilled meats.

La Baracca Restaurant

Delicious cuisine, courtesy and a welcoming atmosphere. Traditional dishes revisited with moderation and the use of local ingredients. Very interesting wine list. A green setting in a relaxing atmosphere.

Orto Corto Farm

Agriculture interpreted as a form of culture and knowledge of the land based on respect for nature and the ecosystem. Orto Corto is the brainchild of Carmine Gigliotti. When tradition meets awareness of the balance between man and the environment, food and lifestyle also improve in quality.

Talarico Farm

With his feet in the present and a radiant gaze towards the future, Giuseppe knows that preserving biodiversity and creating innovation inspired by tradition represents the farming of tomorrow. Like his grandparents, he dries chestnuts using the heat of fire; he gathers and prepares rare herbs for specialities such as Verna wheat biscuits with black aniseed.

Palazzo Stocco

The residence of the anti-Bourbon patriot and general Francesco Stocco, a point of reference for Garibaldi and a prime figure in the 1848 Calabrian uprisings. The palazzo is the result of a transformation of the original 14th-century fortress into a noble mansion.

Sorbello mineral water

This source of water comes from several springs on the slopes of Mount Reventino and is a symbol of the purity of these locations. With a fixed residue of only 39 mg/L, it is the lightest mineral water produced south of the Alps.

Pietra di Fota

A dramatic crag that appears unexpectedly and resembles a strong and powerful giant. Legend has it that it is the throne of fairies, and in the tales of travellers and woodcutters from times past, there was apparently an opening here that led to the magical world of fairies. There are splendid views of Sila and the Reventino area.

Church of the Beata Vergine del Monte Carmelo

Devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a strongly-felt tradition in Calabria. One of the most important festivals is the procession in Adami (16 July) with the wooden statue of the Madonna del Carmelo from the Abbey of Corazzo. The 16th-century Baroque church built by Carmelite friars is well worth seeing.

Church of San Bernardo

In a beautiful position between the hamlets of Passaggio and Tomaini, this church is an 18th-century highlight of the area. The façade is a monumental rendition of the traditional rapillo, the plasterwork made using river stone from the Reventino area, a distinctive element of local architecture.
