Matera 2019

 From being the national shame to the showcase of Italian cuture, Matera has been transformed, mostly by tourism , into what will be the cultural center of Italy in 2019.

Works are evident everywhere. The area looks nothing like what it did years ago when the 20000 traditional settlers were relocated.  It now houses 2000 people in the old part (“casa grotto” or house cave) of town.
