Marcellinara is a comune and town in the province of Catanzaro in the Calabria region of southern Italy.



Marcellinara is located in the middle of the slimmest area of Italy with only 50 kilometres (31 mi) from east to west (sometimes referred to as "La Terra di Due Mari", the land of two seas because it is the narrowest point between the Ionic and Tyhrennean seas) located close to both the regional capital of Catanzaro and the major airport of Lamezia Terme.


A railway bridge between here and Feroleto was washed away by flood waters in 2011.[1]
