“Everybody of us has got a pair of wings, but only who dreams, learns to fly” (by Jim Morrison)
The volunteers of the European Capital of Culture Matera 2019 were among those who dreamed most of all during the year 2019.

The abandoned villages of Basilicata region, together with a series of hidden places in Lazio region, are the background of “Lumina”, the independent and low-budget film by the young director Samuele Sestieri, produced by the new born Studio Ma.Ga.

From 2017 the OPERA OPEN festival mounted a strong array of shows at the Ancient Theatre, presenting premieres, co-productions, and hybrid-genre projects. Opera Open welcomed, on the stage of the Ancient Theatre in Plovdiv, leading soloists of the largest opera and ballet companies.

The Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation commissioned some independent evaluation studies related to the actions to monitor and evaluate the programme and results of Matera European Capital of Culture 2019.

For every euro spent by a cultural tourist in Matera, 1.85 were activated (+ 185%), for every euro invested directly in cultural productions there was a return of 2 € (+ 200%); against an investment in the supply chain most closely linked to cultural production (51% of the resources invested), other economic sectors (49% of the resources) have been stimulated and introduced into the process of creating cultural value.
