Photographer's Note

Matera listen is a town and a province in the region of Basilicata, in southern Italy.The town lies athwart a small canyon, which has been eroded in the course of years by a small stream, the Gravina.
Matera Cathedral (1268–1270) is an important monument, and has been dedicated to Santa Maria della Bruna since 1389. Built in an Apulian Romanesque architectural style, the church has a 52m tall bell tower, and next to the main gate is a statue of the Maria della Bruna, backed by those of Saints Peter and Paul. The main feature of the façade is the rose window, divided by sixteen small columns.
