Roots and routes
People in Matera are particularly fond of two forms of cultural expression: music and food. Thanks to a series of workshops, concerts and dinners organised with the Vegetable Orchestra and Lucanian chefs, these two important traditions will intertwine in a merry explosion of sounds.
Discovering traces of religion in the area of Matera and Basilicata
Promoted by the Matera-Irsina archdiocese through the Church Cultural Park “Terre di luce” – APS
Declining five verbs – to go out, to announce, to inhabit, to educate, to transfigure – to find again the “pleasure for the human”. Understanding the signs of the times to shed light on the darkness of contemporary anthropologic confusion, that is the 'more' of the Christian gaze, in a world where «everything seems the same».
A cultural and generational meeting, storytelling, food, design and performing arts: these are the project guidelines which, starting with Matera’s great breadmaking tradition and stamps, will open the region up to the whole of Italy and Europe in an itinerary of meetings and encounters, through a “recipe” that will not just purely concern food, but will look beyond that, becoming broader in its artistic and cultural scope.
This project envisages artistic and anthropological events using objects which represent the Euro-Mediterranean civic and cultural heritage, through interactive and creative workshops with a view to an open and accessible culture. This process will support and foster crucial discussions and influencing factors to develop communities.
