Abstract

The paper highlights the originalities offered by metropolitan areas such as Reggio Calabria. Here the human actions have found their peculiarities and richness thanks to the close dialogue with the earth's resources and to their use. So, more deeply than in other places, the cultural heritage and the social dynamics participate, and have participated, in the drawing of the space and in giving prospects for the development of the territory. Here, between the end of the XV and the first half of the XVI century, Bernardino Telesio with his “Philosophy of Nature” and his disciple Tommaso Campanella, both Calabrians, have proposed a new way to think the world: they were among the few philosophers, the modern fathers, of what today is defined as ecological thought. The main instruction is to avoid unsustainable choices that might be useful in the short time, but not in the medium or long term because often they increase the risk. The other connected instruction consists in using the present cultural resources and the remained natural ones as design suggestions. The paper, shortly, points out all these elements and suggests the main political and cultural lines to create the original Reggio Calabria Metropolis as proposed in the title*.
