Cosenza (Calabria)

Cosenza is a city in the Calabria region of Southern Italy. The ancient town is the seat of the Cosentian Academy, the second Academy of philosophical and literary studies to be found in the Kingdom of Naples (1511) and one of the oldest in Europe. To this day, the city remains a cultural hub in Southern Italy, with several museums, theatres, libraries and the University of Calabria. Located at the confluence of two historical rivers, the Busento and the Crati, Cosenza stands 238 m above sea level in a valley between the Sila plateau and the coastal range of mountains. The old town, overshadowed by its Norman castle, descends to the river Crati. The modern city lies to the north, beyond the Busento, on level ground.

@mpatters asks:

Hi there,

I am commencing the process of buying a house that I have found near to Tropea in Calabria. Are there any English-speakers out there who can help with introductions to expats who have previously done the same, or recommendations for lawyers and architects.

@Krissie asks:

Does anyone know a reliable builder in the Tropea area who would be able to complete a semi completed complex and attach us to the services in order to obtain the Habitation Certificates?

@Krissie asks:

HiWe are a group of people who own properties in Zambrone.The developer has gone bust and the services have not been connected. As a group, we wish to finish the outstanding work to obtain the Habitation Certificate with a local builder. Has anyone else been in this position who can offer advice
