Calitri is a town and comune of 5,292 inhabitants situated in the province of Avellino, Campania, Italy.OverviewCalitri is in Campania near the borders of the regions of Apulia and Basilicata. It is approximately 530m above sea level so on even on the hottest day there is generally a breeze. The Antico Borgo is in the oldest section of the town, the centro storico, at the top of which are the remains of a castle which predates the 12th century. The Borgo itself is a labyrinth of historic houses which have, over the centuries, been built into the hillside. Stone and marble stairs,frequently under old stone arches, connect the streets. Calitri suffered a devastating earthquake in 1980* and has only been partially rebuilt. The Castello at the top of its distinctive cone shaped hilltop is very impressive for its strong architectural forms. In recent reconstructions they are remerging as an important and physically attractive feature of the town.Other recent excavation and reconstruction of an ancient Neviera in the Gagliano section of the town above the cemetery reveals an extensive underground, domed, ice-house of about 50ft in height and 25ft in horizontal circumference.
