The area of ​​the CORAP Industrial Agglomeration considered for the purposes of the SEZ is bordered to the north by the Battipaglia - Reggio Calabria railway; to the east, from the Sant’Anna stream; to the south, from the Pizzo - Tropea provincial road; to the west, from the road to Trainiti. It also includes a satellite area relating to the Italcementi site. The areas included in the SEZ perimeter cover approximately 184 ha.

According to CORAP data, 78 companies belonging to the manufacturing, logistics and transport, wholesale and retail sectors are located in the area.

The area has two small production specializations, agro-industry, based on the processing and transformation of local fish and agricultural products, and engineering. The latter is mainly linked to the location of the Nuovo Pignone in Vibo Valentia, which over the years has favored the birth and consolidation of local subcontracting companies. These companies have progressively expanded their production capacities, diversified production and clients. Most of these companies are small, producing mechanical products for the petrochemical sector (condensers, metal fuel tanks, carpentry for construction), mostly for foreign clients.



The SEZ Calabria strategic plan, chap. 9 “Facilitations and incentives”, (P.M.D. 12/2018 art. 6, l. g, c. 1) identifies the following main facilities to support the SEZ:

  • Tax credit (Law 208/2015)
  • Development contracts (MISE Agreement, 2-017, D.G.R. 93/2018)
  • Law 181/89 (D.G.R. 423/2016, D.G.R. 95/2018)
  • Craft Fund (D.G.R. 580/2017)

Furthermore, the law n. 178/2020 (Budget Law 2021), art. 1, c. 173-176, introduced a further facility for businesses that set up new economic initiatives in SEZ areas, regarding the reduction by 50% in income taxes for activities carried out in the SEZ.

Vincoli presenti:


Environmentally protective restrictions: The two SEZ development areas along the coastal strip are affected by the “Coastal Territory” constraint (Ref. Art. 142 of Legislative Decree 42/2004).
The largest SEZ area, on the bands perpendicular to the coast, is subject to the "Watercourses" constraint (Ref. Art. 142 of Legislative Decree 42/2004).
The "Vibo Valentia - Castello di Bivona" is confined within the SEZ development area, where there is an architectural constraint.

Environmental Restrictions: In the waters overlooking the coast there is the Naturalistic Constraint - Protected Areas - Regional Marine Park "Fondali Capocozzo", in addition to the Natura 2000 Network area - ZSC IT9340092 "Fondali di Pizzo Calabro".

Restrictions in Hydrogeological structure plan: In the largest SEZ development area, there are areas with a PAI restriction, with different degrees of danger as well as areas of attention.

Restrictions in Coastal Erosion Plan: The coastal strip of the largest SEZ development area is affected by the PSEC constraint.

Flood Risk Areas Management Plan: Compared to the PGRA, coordinated at the hydrographic district level, the largest SEZ development area is completely included in areas affected by floods; the smaller SEZ area, on the other hand, is affected for more than half of its extension.
