MATERA. MOTHER OF STONE (MATERA. VERBORGENE HEIMAT)

MATERA. MOTHER OF STONE
© Alpenway Media

Nine thousand years ago man chose to make his first home here. Matera. Perhaps the mother of all cities. Country of rocks, caves and human traces. Axis between East and West. The European Capital of Culture 2019 has experienced all that makes Europe different, from art to epoch-making changes. Yet, perhaps more than in any other city, here history was made by ordinary men who left a trace of themselves in an extraordinary place.
