    La Gattabuia

    Is a restaurant situated in the historic centre of Matera, a few steps away from Piazza del Sedile, in a suggestive location: a sottano (antique house below street level) which once held the city jail. Finely renovated today, it has maintained its stone barrel vaults, which create a mix of light and shadow, as well as some typical windows which remind the history of one of the most unique cities in the world.

    Is rich in connections and disjunctions. Eternally split between two names (Lucania and Basilicata), divided by Apennine Mountains and demarcated by two seas (the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian seas). Land of crossings, trades and diverse cultural influences, Basilicata offers a fascinating journey amongst nature, history and internationally-known food and wine traditions.
