Sassi di Matera

Sassi has been isolated from civilization until ’50s of the XXth century. Public opinion called this place “shame of Italy”, because of the poverty and unhealthy living conditions. For this reason, authorities made decision to relocate autochthons to new social houses. Thus, the city was abandoned until ’80s. But later, Sassi started to be consider as a cultural heritage and has been included on the UNESCO list.
