Civita is an Italian hilltown and commune in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy

People who’ve been there say “Civita” with warmth and love. This precious chip of Italy, a traffic-free community with a grow-it-in-the-valley economy, has so far escaped the ravages of modernity. The hill town teeters atop a pinnacle in a vast canyon ruled by wind and erosion. Only a few residents remain, many in their late 80s and 90s.

Inside the gate, the charms of Civita are subtle. Those looking for arcade tourism wouldn’t know where to look. There are no lists of attractions, orientation tours, or museum hours. It’s just Italy. Civita is an artist’s dream, a town in the nude. Each lane and footpath holds a surprise. The warm stone walls glow, and each stairway is dessert to a sketch pad or camera.
