Matera

Defined a miracle of time for her harmony between history and modernity, Matera is the town of “Sassi”, an urban agglomeration among the oldest in the world, formed by natural caves carved into the rock, close to Gravina Canyon, that separates the Sassi district from the Park of Murgia Materana, characterized from the caves of the first human settlements and suggestive rock churches.
Matera in 1993 was nominated World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Over the years the city has become more and more natural set of colossal movie.

Today Matera also boasts the title of European Capital of Culture for the 2019.
