Matera

Located 40 miles from Castellana, Matera offers a setting like no other. It was chosen by Pasolini as the set for his 'Gospel according to Matthew'. Suspended in an atmosphere which ranges from the dreamlike to the surreal, faced with its primitive architecture one can only exclaim (like Toto in another of Pasolini's films) “Aah heartrending, wondrous beauty of creation”.
