A combination of tourism and culture, which for the president of the Magna Grecia Foundation is the key to the restart of the South. “We want to give a signal of renewal in an area where almost 20 million people live – said Nino Foti, president of the Magna Grecia Foundation – Works such as the lift just inaugurated in Scilla and the bridge over the Strait are fundamental to unite the North and the South of Italy, to eliminate differences ”. The journalist Alessandro Russo then underlined the extraordinary summer from the point of view of presences in Scilla, asking what forecasts can be made for 2022. “We have focused a lot on the programming of events – Mayor Pasqualino Ciccone explained – We need to look for competitive solutions like that of the panoramic lift, which connects the marine area of Scilla with the historic center. For this summer we have organized numerous events to attract tourists and citizens. But for the future we must also focus on the completion of the car park and the marina. Scilla has nothing to send to other tourist resorts and this summer we have proved it. For the relaunch of the South, tourism and culture are a fundamental combination – concluded Ciccone – and from this analysis proposals can be born not only for Scilla but for the whole of Calabria ”. “The Magna Grecia Foundation intends to focus on Calabrian artists – added the president of the foundation Nino Foti. We must invest in human capital, training and competence. If these elements are present then there can be a quick start in the South ”. Not surprisingly, for the first evening the stage in Piazza San Rocco hosted some Calabrian artists: the actress Annalisa Insardà and the Fabio Macagnino Trio. Insardà recited two monologues on the hunger for justice and the values in which to believe, while the musical group performed several songs, including “Jasmine butterfly”, “Carma” and “Canzuni duci”.
