Why Parallelo 38?

The 38th parallel touches the city of Reggio Calabria in Italy. Here there is a monument in the place where this parallel meets the Ionian coast of Reggio Calabria, near the 106 main road. This monument was created in 1987 after an international meeting organized by the Dante Alighieri Society and wants to celebrate an ideal link of peace and collaboration among all the cities which are crossed by the 38th parallel: Reggio Calabria, Seul, Smirne, Atene, San Francisco, Cordova.
