Napizia was a mythical center of learning founded by the Phocaeans in Magna Graecia. The engineers who studied science and mathematics at Napizia built ships that sailed the Mediterranean and temples that you can still visit today.
Over time, the city continued to attract scholars from around the world, so as you stroll the streets of Napizia today, you will hear many languages.
The townspeople here know Italian and English, but they prefer to speak Napitinu, a Calabrese dialect of the Sicilian language, which we are recording in a dictionary and translator.
To increase your vocabulary, you can look up some words in the Dieli Dictionary and follow the links to the Chiù dâ Palora pages, which annotate the most common words with grammar and examples drawn from poetry, proverbs and prose. Then search our collection with our Trova na Palora tool.
We hope you like our project. If you would like to contact us, please send an email to: email@example.com. We await you in Napizia!
We hope our photos reflect the warmth and hospitality of the Napitini and our admiration of their civic pride. The photos on this website are beautiful because they love their city.
