The Festival Internazionale della Sibaritide was born with the aim to  evocate the ancient splendor of Sybaris, important city of the Magna  Graecia, praised by historians for its power and wealth.   The First Edition of the Festival, Città di Lagaria, will take place on  August 19-20-21-23 2015 at the Archeological Park Timpone della  Motta-Macchiabate of Francavilla Marittima, in the Province of  Cosenza, Calabria. A fascinating “journey through history” will consent to discover the  most significant phases of the ancient civilizations. In particular, the  Festival will focus on the encounter between the Oenotrians,  indigenous population already settled in the territories of Ionian Sea,  since the VIII-VII century B.C, and the Ancient Greeks, who arrived on  the shores of southern Italy, conquering Sybaris on 720 B.C.   During the 3-day Festival, there will be celebrations in costume,  guided tours, debates, workshops, theme dinners and other initiatives, which will highlight rituals and traditions of the ancient civilizations as  well as natural beauties, culture, art and history of the rich territory of   Sybaris.
