The town was struck by the 1980 Irpinia earthquake on 23 November. The town had to be rebuilt after the serious damage that was inflicted. It is in the earthquake region so it is prone to small earthquakes once every couple of months. A mountainous region surrounds Calabritto and gives it its truly scenic views.
It borders with the municipalities of Acerno (SA), Bagnoli Irpino, Caposele, Lioni, Senerchia and Valva (SA). The only civil parish (frazione) of the municipality is Quaglietta, autonomous municipality merged into Calabritto in 1928.
In the summer, many religious processions are held. In early July, people walk halfway up one of the mountains to the church of The Madonna, or Mother of Christ. Most citizens in Calabritto are Roman Catholic, some are Evangelists, and other Christian Religions. In the summer, the temperatures range from 15 to 32 °C (59 to 90 °F). Most of the workers in Calabritto work for the Industrial Firm located in Salerno. The common surnames of the town are Mattia, Zecca, Ficetola, Gonnella, Papa, Di Trolio, D`Alessio, Filippone, Castagno and Del Guercio.
