Molise in Southern Italy

Molise is the second smallest region of Italy and is situated in Southern Italy. Molise is not an old region and was formed in 1963 when the region of “Abruzzi e Molise” was split in two: Abruzzo and Molise. It has a small coastline along the Adriatic Sea on its east and is bordered by Lazio to its west, Campania to its south and Puglia to its south. Molise is primarily a mountainous region with a coastline that extends only for 35 kms. The region of Molise is scarcely populated with a population of about 300,000 people and the area of the region is 1,714 sq. miles. There are no lowlands and because of the dominance of the mountainous areas there is a natural barrier for the economic and social development of the region. The youth of Molise often leave the region for larger areas to find employment opportunities. Molise is divided into two provinces: Campobasso and Isernia where Isnernia also serves as a regional capital.
