it used to be somewhere else

It would seem something really unthinkable, however, according to what was reported, it was different from what we see today.

There are discoveries that can truly leave us in awe of how extraordinary they are. And, to tell the truth, for thousands of years there have been discoveries or ideas that have changed the course of events.

Here, therefore, in the next lines, we would like to mention a topic that closely concerns a specific region of the Bel Paese.

On the other hand, as we know, Italy is rich in history and places that might initially represent mysteries for scholars, but of which, little by little, something more has been understood.

Scientists are therefore still today grappling with research and experiments that can be absolutely important for the awareness of planet Earth.

So, more interestingly, it could be something that doesn’t go beyond Italian borders. In this respect, therefore, it may seem strange to you what we have decided to report to you.

However, according to reliable sources, it seems that the past was somewhat different from what we currently refer to with the name Calabria.

Researchers have recently decided to see clearly, to be precise, in the geological origins of the Calabrian microplate. In fact, a group of researchers from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, often abbreviated as INGV, have published their own truly mind-blowing discovery.

The results of the latest research

In particular, according to the aforementioned team, Calabria, about thirty million years ago, would not have been part of Italy. Indeed, according to what they say, it was probably annexed to the regions of Catalonia, Spain and French Provence.

Director Fabio Speranza, acting as a spokesperson for the study, therefore said that the study in question analyzed a layer of rocks dated to around two hundred million years ago.

The data found therefore show that Calabria, step by step, broke away from Sardinia and Corsica and went to penetrate the mountainous edifice of the Apennines.

In short, apparently, the origin of this beautiful Italian region is not what it has always seemed to us. Anyway, let’s see if even later there can be other developments of this absolutely relevant research that allow us to better understand what has been in the past.
