There is a particular segment of the holiday industry that is origin tourism. Origin or roots tourism is characterised by those travellers who travel driven by the desire to get to know and explore the places where their relatives were born and of which, until then, they have only heard about. Basilicata, one of Italian regions mostly affected by emigration, stands out as a Research Lab for Roots Tourism. To this end, their ROOTS-in exchange is set as a regular annual meeting.

‘Intrecci di Comunità - Sviluppo della filiera produttiva della Nuova Libbaneria Mediterranea’ is a project - supported by Fondazione con il Sud and Enel Cuore - that recovers and enhances the production of the „libbani“, the ancient plant ropes used for navigation in the Mediterranean until the 1960s.

On Saturday 15 July, Open Sound Festival, one of the legacy projects of Matera 2019, presents the final evening of the 2023 edition in the Pollino National Park, from 7.30 p.m., with Eugenio in Via Di Gioia and other guests, at sunset, in the wonderful setting of Mulino Iannarelli in San Severino Lucano (Potenza, Basilicata, Italy).

From Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 July, Open Sound Festival 2023 arrives in Matera, European capital of culture for 2019. This is the concrete representation of the idea of Land Music Experience that characterises the Open Sound project identity: a rigorous investigation of the soundscape that meets sensitivity for new forms of expression, the courage of innovation that meets the ancestral power of origins. This is the leitmotif of an unmissable lineup that brings internationally renowned artists to some of the most iconic venues in the City of the Sassi.

Matera 2019 continues to be a model for cities applying for the title of European Capital of Culture to study.  On 15 and 16 June, a delegation from the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, after a stop in Rome at the Ministry of Culture, visited Matera to study the path of the European Capital of Culture in view of 2029, when a Polish city will be celebrating this title.
