Lucania

Photographer Pierangelo Laterza, born in Matera, likes to quote Carlo Levi in presenting the series he dedicated to Basilicata, because the writer’s words explain everything he found in the folds of this land: “Lucania [another name for the region] seems to me like a place that is more real than any other, one of the realest places in the world. Here, I rediscover the proportion of things. Fights and contrasts are real. The bread missing is real bread, the house missing is a real house, and the pain nobody understands is a real pain. The inner tension in this world is the very reason of its reality: here history and mythology, present time and eternity coincide.”
