About This Design
Sassi di Matera Poster
This LOOKS like a typical Italian hill town, right? It's not. You think so, until you realize the "houses" are all windowless grottoes with damp walls and earthen floors, where the family's animals slept side-by-side with the humans. Far from being uncivilized, these rock towns had intricate hydraulic systems that kept water fresh and cool year round. Eventually the caves gained facades and roofs, but the interiors remained virtually unchanged. Nearly 15,000 people were still living in I Sassi as late as the mid 1950's, when the government declared them unhealthy and outlawed their use. Sassi di Matera (Stones of Matera) has been added to the UNESCO - This is the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem. The first inhabited zone dates from the Palaeolithic, while later settlements illustrate a number of significant stages in human history. Matera is in the southern region of Basilicata. One of the benefits of the ancient city, is that there is a great similarity in the look of the Sassi with that of ancient sites in and around Jerusalem. And this is what has caught the eye of film directors and the big studios. Mel Gibson filmed part of "The Passion of Christ" in Matera.
