Lets go to know our Calabria?
Files of World War II?
Italians… people of Saints, sailors, poets and emigrants! These words represent the truth of thirty million Italians who emigrated abroad in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. At first, they were mainly from Veneto, Friuli and Piedmont, and from 1900, the regions of Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily were the most affected by the phenomenon of mass emigration. There are more than sixty-four million descendants of Italian emigrants scattered in many countries and many of them would love to find traces of relatives, close to them or not, who left our country during the world wars to try their luck overseas. Even a certain phenomenon, more pronounced, happened with our Calabrian relatives and among the most popular destinations, Brazil has always been one of the countries that appear in as first option. In this text we will address the so-called ‘tourism of origins’, which consists of the journey for emigrants and descendants to know the land from their roots. What Are The Ten Places You Must See In Calabria?
The desire to return to ‘departure station’
The desire to return to ‘departure station’ to discover the places of origin, where the family history began, is very common to all the children of immigrants in the world, and we call ‘tourism of origins’.
A phenomenon that opens great opportunities for the segment and which in our country is still beginning, although historically Italy, in the late nineteenth and seventies, was the point of origin of a phenomenon of migration that involved thirty millions of our compatriots. The journey and their stay in places of origin represent an experience of high emotional content because it provides an opportunity to review their loved ones and, above all, to rediscover the places that marked their life before leaving, or, in the case of descendants, the journey is to search for their roots and discover the places where their grandparents or antecedents lived.
More and more people are interested not only in classic tourism, where they can visit the most important art cities, but also many who are asking to include in the classic itineraries visits to their cities of origin; a return that, for many, means to know their place of origin, culture and tradition of the country, as well as the origins of their relatives.
The segment so-called ‘return tourism‘ is gradually increasing, and this text wants to deepen this theme, which gives the idea of how the interest for the recovery of its cultural roots is alive. How many times have you heard, perhaps at a Christmas lunch or, more easily, at a family reunion, someone remembers the various relatives and the vicissitudes of each of them? How often have you heard that your grandfather died in the war or have emigrated because of the war? Certainly many times!
How to find them?
Memories and remembrances are many and with the inexorable passage of time, seem to be postcards that have lost the ink and color. Sometimes the relatives who emigrated after the two wars neither know their neither name nor last name. In Italy, church research and records are not immediately available, especially if you’re far away, and it is precisely for this reason that we are able to offer a particularly strategic service, with routes that are quite unusual, outside the classic ‘boring’ tourism.
The return in the great-grandfather’s village is, without any doubt, an emotional, visceral experience, and returns a true story that speaks of the escape from poverty, but also of the rediscovery of traditions, words, flavors, people and feelings.
Reminder of the origins
It is often the reminder of the origins that draws relatives from many different places and we see descendants willing to stop for a little more time ‘to visit different places’. And then my agency will be able to meet this new goal, with personalized services in departure locations of the largest Italian emigration places, starting with my adopted land, Calabria. Now you can find your relatives, places, origins and traditions of Calabria that has been left behind to seek new opportunities.
