“I live and work in Matera because I decided to restart from here as an individual to share the dream of community that has slowly opened a path to views, dreams and people of all nationalities, at this time the greatest value for the city. I’m working here, because I want to open my life, and empathize with the world, even when I’m not traveling, even when I’m not at sea. Above all I fell in love with Matera for her genius of tranquility and peace, which is well suited to the slow activity of craftsmanship.”
