Over the centuries, many Calabrians have emigrated. They left their country searching for something else. Sometimes they were hoping for a better future and a safer job, sometimes they wanted to see the world and make new experiences.
Whatever the reason, they decided to travel by ship to America, to head for foreign destinations by train, or to seek new luck by car.
Some of them probably returned home after a few years abroad. Many others made their destination as their new home.
They founded a family and started a new life. New generations of Calabrians, with children, grandchildren, brothers and cousins grew up far from Calabria and maybe even outside of Italy.
However, through affection and love for their origins, they kept talking about their land, the place they grew up in, the traditions, the cuisine, the habits that accompanied them and the smiles they preserved in their hearts.
With melancholy they told their children and grandchildren anecdotes and stories of their village.
