Strongoli is a comune and town with a population of over 6000 people in the province of Crotone, in Calabria, southernmost Italy.HistoryIn Antiquity, Strongoli was the site of Petelia, said to have been founded by Philoctetes. It is the birthplace of Italian baroque composer Leonardo Vinci.Ecclesiastical HistorySome historians claim that Ancient Petelia already was a bishopric, established perhaps in 546 or then adopting the city's new medieval name Strongoli, but without solid evidence, and the see in never mentioned in the Byzantine imperial Notitia Episcopatuum of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, which most dioceses in Calabria belogned to in the 9th till 11th centuries, so its foundation may rather date from the Normans, probably late 12th century.The first historical record of the Diocese of Strongoli (Curiate Italian) / Strongulen(sis) (Latin adjective) is a papal bulla from Pope Lucius III in 1183, naming it among the suffragans of the Archdiocese of Santa Severina (while confirming the Metropolitan's privileges).The tiny bishopric, comprising solely the municipality of Strongoli, was confined by the Ionian SeaaArchdiocese of Santa Severina]], Diocese of Crotone (separated by the river Neto), the Diocese of Umbriatico and its Metropolitan, the Archdiocese of Santa Severina.
