The proverbial Calabrian hospitality was born from thousand-year-old customs: Xenia (the Greek name) was a ritual based on mutual respect between guest and host, which stated the delivery by the latter of a parting gift that sealed the greeting. The Greeks believed that any foreigner passing through, be it a rich merchant or a beggar, could hide a disguised god intent on testing their welcoming virtues. Whoever knocks at a house in Calabria will always run the sublime risk of being overwhelmed with attention, toasts and delicious food, prepared according to tradition by vestals of the stove ready to do anything to gratify Zeus.
