18:35 – Lecture – “Matera – The Passion of the Sassi” by Leslie Xavier, President, IAS.
The Sassi is the only place where the “dead are above ground and the living abide below”. Here you can sence a timelessness as you look out over an area that has been continuously inhabited since the Neolithic Period. What was once the “Shame of Italy” is now a World Heritage Site. Join us as we discover why producers such as Mel Gibson are drawn to the Sassi and its rustic cave dwellings and curious rock cut churches.
After the lecture we will address the following items of business
This will be a round table discussion of the above topics. Other topics can be added to the discussion if time allows. Please note, due to the limited time, tour payments can be made only after the meeting not before.
