COSENZA – On Friday evening, Calabria will host an evening celebrating Mediterranean culture, and awarding those who have contributed significantly towards it.

 The 12th edition of the ‘Premio per la Cultura Mediterranea’ has been organised and supported by La Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Calabria e di Lucania and will take place at the Alfonso Rendano Theatre on Oct. 5.
