MATERA — FROM THE SHAME OF ITALY TO THE EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE

Switzerland (2018), 52 min.

Directed by Christian Walther

Produced by Pedro Haldemann, SRF Sternstunde Kunst, SRF/SRG Pacte de l‘audiovisuel

The cave city of Matera is one of the oldest continually inhabited spots in Europe

It has been notoriously famous as ‘the shame of Italy’ in the 1950s on the basis of the novel “Christ Stopped At Eboli” by Carlo Levi. In the last few years, however, everything has changed: Matera will be the European Capital of Culture in 2019. And since this decision has been made, buildings are being renovated, school classes from all over Italy are being dragged through the narrow streets, and dedicated volunteers are working on all kinds of cultural and other projects, so that Matera will remain an attractive place to live and work

A lm about exceptional people in an extraordinary city, and about a question that many other small cities around Europe have to ask themselves constantly: How is sustainable tourism to be promoted?
