In warm southern Italy, Basilicata shines brightly, contending between sea and mountains. The region’s pride and joy is the famous city of Matera with its Stones, where centuries-old bread is made.
Basilicata’s forests, teeming with any fruit you could wish for, or the small towns of Sarconi, with its native beans, and Senise, make this region unique. It is from the latter town, little Senise, that comes one of the specialties that has made Basilicata famous throughout the world: the Peperone Crusco di Senise.
Start your journey in Basilicata through its specialties, the result of the passion of the people and its unique territory.
