About 560,000 people live in the metropolitan area, recognised in 2015 by Italian Republic as a metropolitan city.
As an independent city since 271 BC Regium was an important ally and "socia navalis" of Rome.
It is the capital of the Metropolitan City of Reggio Calabria and the seat of the Regional Council of Calabria.
Reggio is located on the "toe" of the Italian Peninsula and is separated from the island of Sicily by the Strait of Messina.
Reggio is the seat, since 1907, of the Archeological Superintendence of Bruttium and Lucania.
The city centre, consisting primarily of Liberty buildings, has a linear development along the coast with parallel streets, and the promenade is dotted with rare magnolias and exotic palms.
