The territory

Molise exists

The region

Molise extends between the Apennine ridge and the Adriatic Sea. Nature, history, art, ancient traditions and gastronomy are the treasures of this still little known land. When you visit Molise you feel a sensation of "discovery", starting from its territory, mainly mountainous and hilly, furrowed by the characteristic "tratturi", the historical paths of transhumance that unite the pastures of Abruzzo with those of Puglia.

The capital

The city of Campobasso, thanks to its role as administrative center assumed in the nineteenth century, experienced an urban expansion based on a system of orthogonal planks that gave it the nickname of Garden City.

The economy

Molise's economy is poorly developed compared to the Italian average, although it has a slightly higher GDP per capita than other regions of the South.

Main industries

The region's economic income comes mainly from the primary sector. The industry is characterized by the presence of some important realities operating in the automotive sector. Tourism began to develop in the 2000s: the region has wide areas of unspoilt greenery, plains, mountains and 35 km of coastline.
