Castellana-Grotte is in the balance between an uncertain modernity and a still-recent rural past, characterised by legends and popular devotion. Therefore, the town reveals its contradictions to its visitors.
New alienating areas with disquieting reinforced-concrete buildings alternate with still-untouched rustic spots.
New shopping centres share the stage with hidden little boutiques. The town of the past – industrious and cautious, fertile and conservative – lives again during town festivals and patron celebrations.
As with any vestiges from the past, the traditions of Castellana also need a sincere respect and new interpretations to continue to survive, in order to be spared from the pervasive marketing and fierce banalization.
