The secrets of Sassi

There are thousands of reasons to see Matera: if you are a cinema fan you will find there the set of movies like The Passion by Mel Gibson. If you love sacred representations you can’t miss the live Nativity happening every December and January. No one doubts that there will be more and more events, exhibitions, festivals, shows in the run up to 2019, when Matera will be the European capital of culture. This town in the Southern region of Basilicata has recently been re-discovered and is now living a revival of tourism and interest for its famous Sassi. We propose this itinerary in archeological section since in Matera it is possible to take a dip in the history since the Neolithic. Thanks to a in-depth knowledge of Basilicata, Elesta can organize original visits of the town and its surroundings touching treasures like the Museum of Contemporary Sculpure or the Cripta of Original Sin.
