What you'll do

The Origins Paths is an excursion of about 3 hours along the most exclusive routes in the territory of Matera and in the Murgia Materana Park. We will arrive in places of exceptional archaeological, cultural and natural value, inside a unique landscape that tells the history of the origins of Matera. We will meet in the historical center of Matera and we will move by car to reach the entrance of the routes where we will leave the means of transport. We will begin a journey into a surprising and wild world along which we will understand how man has lived from prehistory to our days in this area of ​​extraordinary beauty. We will find ourselves inside rocky settlements with great archaeological evidence and always in environments of particular value and naturalistic interest. At the end of the tour guests will be taken back to the starting point in the center of Matera. The Origins Paths is an ideal experience for those who love research and cultural discovery, far from the clichés and places of mass tourism. It is an ideal experience also for those who love photography or simply to enjoy unique places and landscapes.

I graduated in physics, I conducted research in many areas. For about 20 years I have been conducting research on the history of the origins of Matera with scientific publications. Over the past 10 years, research has been extended to the whole South of Italy. I carry out about 200 scientific and professional excursions every year, of which over half are in the Matera area. Over the years I have produced over half a million professional photographic images that constitute one of the most significant archives in the area. I am happy to be able to offer my knowledge to guests who want to have this experience.
