Cinema in Matera

In one of the rooms used as a cellar, we can find a special timeline today. A journey from 1950 to 2020, along all the films shot in Matera. A relationship between the city and the seventh art, which began 70 years ago with the documentary film and then passed to the realist cinema in the ’50s and ’60s. Numerous films have also exploited the particular conformation of the stones and the Murgia of Matera to recreate settings similar to Jerusalem or Palestine. The first to inaugurate the biblical theme will be the Italian Pier Paolo Pasolini with his “The Gospel according to St. Matthew”, many years later, in 2004, will be the American Mel Gibson to be inspired by the same places, shooting “The Passion of the Christ” that will consecrate definitely Matera as religious and spiritual landscape.
