Travel Tips for Matera

Bread

by hquittner

Bread (and of course pasta) are the staples of Italian diet. In times gone by it was regulated and customarily baked in a central oven ( as well as that the flour was restictedly milled). The citizens would shape their loaves and bring them to the communal oven. Before delivery to the oven they would "brand" them with their personal dough stamp. Close by the bakery which we visited, we found a wood-carver making stamps to order (with your initial). How could you not bring them home to your offspring? The bread today is made by the bakers and bought over the counter. Such bread is becoming scarce in Italy (prefab flour and store baked is almost all you can get in the USA). They eye-ball the amount ,shape it, weigh it to check aganst underweight , and off it goes to the oven. The left over dough makes pizzas and calzones. Can you smell it?

I SASSI DI MATERA

by piccolina

A Fantastic World Heritage .

This is one of the most extraordinary spots on earth, which is why UNESCO, since 1993, has listed it among its 365 official World Heritage List locations.
"Sassi" are 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. There are several places where you can visit a typically furnished sasso. I visit one at Vico Solitario 12, in Sasso Caveoso.
