Aspromonte is where the celebrated Italian bandit Giuseppe Musoline, aka "King of the Aspromonte", was born. It is also the cradle of the 'Ndrangheta, the notorious Calabrian Mafia clan.
The Aspromonte, a region in southern Italy that stretches from the coastline to the peak of the Montalto at an altitude of 1,995 metres, occupies several pages in Italy's history books. It is a region of endless natural, cultural and artisic beauty but has also been the scene of numerous tragedies. Swiss photographer Roger Wehrli captured its mystique. (Photos: Roger Wehrli)
