Welcome to Unspoilt Basilicata and Matera is a richly illustrated photographic evocation that tries to lovingly capture the essence and the enigmatic beauty of this unspoilt part of Italy, a travel guide that takes the reader on an unforgettable odyssey into a region steeped in the charm of a mysterious past where the spirits of druids still roam, where trees, in mysterious arboreal rites, are joined in holy matrimony and where Pythagoras' footsteps on the beaches of the Ionian Sea are still visible. Basilicata's kaleidoscopic landscape, filled with historical and architectural wonders, has served as a backdrop to a great many films. Out there is a largely untamed region where you can walk for days enjoying the purity of nature, where you can visit literary parks, explore awe-inspiring archaeological sites, Greek and Roman ruins, medieval castles, abbeys, ghost towns and stunning small villages. Where you can enjoy a sun and surf holiday on paradisiacal beaches along the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts, where you can immerse yourself in the magical world of harvest ceremonies and summer festivals celebrating anything from snails to chestnuts, where you can relive arboreal rites, historical re-enactments and carnival celebrations, where you can enjoy the unique flavours of Basilicata's delicious food and wines you will find nowhere else in Italy. As just a little icing on the cake, you'll find out out that hospitality is sacred here, so wherever you go you will be treated royally. The people of Basilicata will go to great lengths to help you out and feed you up.
