The Story to live Together
“La Rocca degli Dei” is a typical Calabrian liquor business owned by Carmine. For months, he has been developing a new liqueur based on typical local herbs. Today he convened a group of experts to finalize the recipe and understand how to transfer into this new product the soul of the culture and traditions of the country of Fuscaldo. From the collection of officinal herbs, to the archaeology of the ancient stone doorways of the village, an immersion in the oldest heart of Calabria awaits you.
Do you feel up to it? Then make your way to the factory to be part of the team of authorized experts gathered to start production!
Carmine, Experiential Tourism Operator
Hello, I’m Carmelo, Carmine for friends, owner of the Rocca degli Dei, a typical liquor company, and local administrator. I have always been fascinated by the ancient history of my native town, Fuscaldo, with its bell towers, portals, and apotropaic masks. With me, you will walk through its alleys, learn to pick up wild fennel and you will become a real expert in liqueur!
