The Arbëreshëhe The Arbereshe or Albanian from Italy are an ethnic and linguistic language minority . They established in Italy after the Ottoman-Turkish invasions. We can find these minorities in our region, Basilicata, as well as in Calabria, Molise, Sicilia and Puglia. They are very characteristic people: They have peculiar costumes and traditions different from the rest of the country. In particolar they have maintained their language and their Orthodox-Greek religious rite. In Basilicata there are five communities representing this minority and they are: San Costantino, San Paolo, Maschito Ginestra and Barile. These communities are situated in the North and South of Basilicata.
