Matera

Matera is a town and a province in the region of Basilicata, it lies athwart a small canyon, which has been eroded in the course of years by a small stream, the Gravina. Sometimes referred to as Lucania, in the south of Italy. Matera has gained international fame for its ancient town, the 'Sassi di Matera' (meaning 'stones of Matera'); the Sassi originate from a prehistoric (troglodyte) settlement, and are suspected to be some of the first human settlements in Italy. Because of the ancient and primitive scenery in and around the Sassi, it has been used by filmmakers as the setting for ancient Jerusalem. A chapter on Matera describing the life of people in the south of Italy at the beginning of the twentieth century is in the book Cristo si fermato a Eboli (Christ stopped at Eboli) by Carlo Levi.
