Reggio Calabria, whose webcams are available on the site, is surrounded by mountains and the sea, it is the oldest and largest city in the heart of the Mediterranean.

The history of Reggio di Calabria begins several thousand years ago. Historians suggest that the great-grandson of Noah named Ashenez was involved in its foundation. Subsequently, he gave his name to the entire region, which was called Ashenasia. This ancient heritage is still present in the historical memory of the city, thanks to the name of Aschenez street.
According to legend, in the settlement of Ashenez in 730 BC. settled people of Ionian origin, who came from Chalkis to about. Euboea. From this island came the founders of many other Greek colonies. Then the city was given the name Region, from the word "reghnümi", which means to break. This is a symbolic reminder of the separation of Sicily from Calabria. Other sources claim that the word has an Indo-European root "reg" - "leader, king." This is a reference to the headland that dominated the panorama from the peninsula.
There is also a theory that the city was founded by Chalkid settlers. They gave it the name Reggio according to the instructions of the Delphic oracle and it was located at the mouth of the Apsia River (the current Calopinace River). Here they met a vine clinging to a wild fig tree. The prophecy said that they would find "a female clinging to a male."

Despite different theories of the creation of Reggio di Calabria, whose webcams allow you to enjoy the landscapes of the area, it has developed rapidly.

All this was due to its location and enlightened government. It flourished as a Greek colony in the 5th century. BC. For example, a school of Pythagoreans who fled from Croton appeared in the Region. It acquired great importance here, giving life to schools of poetry and sculpture. Thanks to her, the policy also gained artistic and cultural prestige.
During the clashes between the Greeks of Southern Italy and the Carthaginians, Rhegion supported the latter due to strong rivalry and was almost completely destroyed shortly thereafter by order of the Syracusan ruler Dionysius the Elder. After that, on the site of the Region, a new city appeared under the name of Phoebe (the city of the Sun). It was built by the son of the Syracusan ruler.

Reggio di Calabria, whose webcams plunge into the atmosphere of antiquity, was prosperous, even in the Roman period, however, then it was called Regium Julium (Reggio Giulia) in honor of Julius Caesar.

At the same time, despite Roman rule, he preserved the Greek language and traditions for a long time.
