Acri ( _gr. Akroi, Pandosia, Acheruntia) is town and comune in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of Italy.

History

Two archaeological digs (1999-2000-2001-2008) have described two phases of early settlement in the area. The earliest remains correspond to the Copper Age, the more recent to an advanced Early Bronze Age. It has been suggested that some of the latter represent the ancient Greek city of Acheruntia or Pandosia (Bruttium).

Famous residents

The bodybuilder Charles Atlas was born Angelo Siciliano in Acri in 1892; he moved to New York when he was 13.
