Is traveling solo in Calabria safe post-Rosarno rioting 1/2010?
In light of the January, 2010 rioting of foreign migrant workers in Rosarno, Calabria, do any of you have safety advice for me as I plan a solo long stay in Trebisacce (CO) along the Ionian coast? http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/world/europe/13italy.html Mind you, I am aware of the overly negative sensational reporting that exists in the press portraying Calabria as some sort of "Wild West." I've always believed ANY region has its "dangerous zone." Nevertheless, the Rosarno incident and travelling solo have made me somewhat anxious. I would greatly appreciate any advice from those of you who are living or travelling in Calabria now since the media is not always truthful.
