Matera is a magical city

Books, works of art, architecture, traditions, stories of things and people tell it all.

It is a unique city, the maximum expression of man’s need to transform a narrow area into a town teeming with life. The Sassi are testimony to this: houses dug into the tuff, corridors of streets, terraces and squares created from bare rock and transformed into a container of existences, human activities, stories of families and screaming children.
Unesco acclaims it as its own heritage: it recognizes its ancient beauty, ancestral charm, prodigious architecture, simple but at the same time breathtaking.

Ancient Matera is a cone of houses, visible from every view of the modern city, a paradise for the senses that steals the eye, hypnotizes, fascinates and captivates.

Walking through the streets of the Sassi is like immersing yourself in a ball of ancient stories, discovering every meaning as you go along and leafing through pages of past life that release energy, love and fidelity to your land.
Matera screams its beauty. Just look at it. It is not enough to describe it.
