Molise is a region of Southern Italy. Until 1963, it formed one as part of the existing region of Abruzzo. In 1970, it was officially split in two. Therefore, this is the youngest region in Italy. It’s an extremely small area with only two provinces. They are Campobasso, the capital, and Isernia. Molise shares a border with Abruzzo, Campania, Lazio, and Puglia. There is also a large coastline on the Adriatic Sea called the Dolphin Coast. Most of the land is full of hills and mountains which slope down into the sea. The region is the least densely populated in the whole country. The cuisine is very similar to Abruzzo. Seafood on the coast is popular while vegetables, cheeses, lamb meat, and legumes are more popular inland.
