Pentedattilo, in a abandoned village on the slopes of the Aspromonte Reggio Calabria, in the town of Melito Porto Salvo, located at the foot of a rocky outcrop on the shape that recalls a hand, hence the name. In fact the village is located in the "Hellenistic" Calabrian where the Greek influence in customs, traditions and language are still present. In fact the name means, from greek, "five fingers." Currently they resist only two inhabitants, while during the day they open some craft stores. In the autumn it held an international film festival.
ITA - Pentedattilo, borgo abbandonato alle pendici dell'Aspromonte reggino, in comune di Melito Porto Salvo, sorge ai piedi di un complesso roccioso dalla forma che richiama una mano, da cui il nome. Infatti il borgo si trova nell'area "grecanica" calabrese dove l'influenza greca in usi, costumi, tradizioni e lingua sono ancora presenti. Infatti il nome significa, dal greco, "cinque dita". Attualmente resistono due soli abitanti, mentre di giorno si aprono alcuni negozi di artigianato. In autunno vi si svolge un festival cinematografico internazionale.
