Isola di Capo Rizzuto

Isola di Capo Rizzuto is a comune (municipality) in the province of Crotone, Calabria, Italy. The population of the town is around 15,000.OverviewDespite the name Isola, the town is entirely on the mainland. There are several theories under which the name derives from Greek mythology or is a corruption of a Greek word. Geographically the seaside district of the town of Capo Rizzuto is a peninsula. Elsewhere the main historical attraction, the powerful 16th-century fortification in the district of Le Castella, stands on piece of land connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway.In 1977 the archaeologist Domenico Marino discovered and excavated a site on the Capo Piccolo promontory with important Early Bronze Age II and Middle Bronze Age I-II artifacts of Minoan origin, demonstrating early trade contact between the eastern Mediterranean and Italy. The finds are on display in the National Archaeological Museum in nearby Crotone.The town forms part of the Marine Protected Area Capo Rizzuto.
