Philadelphia, a voice will tell the thousand-year history of the country: here is the audio guide project


By John

Finally the ancient village of Castelmonardoan area managed by the Municipality of Philadelphia and destroyed by the earthquake of 1783, will have a voice that will tell its thousand-year history. All this will be possible thanks to the stubbornness of the Castelmonardo municipal institution which was able to intercept a notice published by the Calabria Region. The approved project, among the various activities, also includes the development of an audio guide accessible via some QR-CODEs printed on panels installed in the streets of the ancient village.

Its creation was made possible thanks to the work carried out and followed by the publishing house Edizioni Beroe founded by Renato Costa from Vibo.. For Beroe this is a further collaboration started with a local administration after the work carried out for the Municipality of Vibo Valentia. The texts are accessible in both Italian and English thanks to the voice of Giuseppe Ingoglia from Vibo.

¬ęThe collaboration for the development of an audio guide that tells the story of a territory makes me proud and gives added value to the sacrifices faced by believing in the culture and in my editorial project. As a Calabrian citizen, I leave such a precious contribution to a community that will be able to exhibit its historical heritage to tourists from all over the world. I thank the Municipality of Fidalelfia, represented by the councilor Masino Diaco, and above all the municipal institution Castelmonardo, its president Giuseppe Serraino, the director Loredana Majolo and Antonella Carchedi, councilor of the Board of Directors. Special thanks go to the professionalism of Giuseppe Ingoglia and to the archaeologist Fabio Lico who put me in contact with the municipal administration. Municipal administrations by carefully searching the Calabrian landscape can discover precious local resources capable of offering competence and quality. Edizioni Beroe is tracing a path that aims to recover the prestige of territories, set aside by consumer tourism, through the publication of books but above all by exploiting a precious resource such as the voice, an instrument capable of overcoming the physical difficulties that limit the reading of a text by giving equal dignity to every person.” This is the declaration of the publisher Renato Costa who, together with the Philadelphia community, awaits the imminent installation of the panels to enjoy this evocative journey among the ruins of Castelmonardo.
