There is no town or village called Patrona in Italy, but there is a village called PEtrona (with an E) in the province of Catanzaro, with 8 Grecos, 46 Marchios and 2 Brunis listed in the Italian White Pages.

There is probably a bus from Catanzaro to Petrona.

There are trains from Rome to Catanzaro. Most take around 6 hours and require a change in Lamezia Terme.

I assume from your member name that you are male. I haven't traveled in Calabria, but I think you'd be perfectly safe as a man or a woman, but if you're a woman, you might get some questioning looks in rural Calabria. But if you managed to establish some kind of relationship with someone trustworthy, people would probably be very welcoming.
