Cityscape of Matera, Basilicata

Today’s photo comes from the stony, surreal cityscape of Matera, Basilicata. I was reminded to post about the 2019 Italian Capitale della Cultura after yesterday’s announcement proclaiming Parma the Italian cultural capital for 2020.

We’re currently in the Year of Palermo.

Palermo, Matera, Parma…future winners are sure to be dazzling examples of all that Italy has to offer.

    Wow, gorgeous photos of Matera! I really hope to get there this year, I’ve wanted to go for a quite some time.

    A very unique city. Glad they have renovated their city and the world is starting to learn about them.
