The series of documentaries “Matera 15/19” describe the Basilicata and South Italy for a duration of four years, starting in 2015, on the occasion of the international event that has proclaimed the Città dei Sassi (literary “City of Rocks”) as the European Capital of Culture 2019.

Matera is an ancient and fascinating city, but it is also isolated and less known than many others Italian towns. However, every year many foreigners decide to stop here, among the history and the beauty of the city, searching for a new life. Migrants, expats, students and workers: they are very different from each other, but they all chose Matera as a new home.

Why Matera? Where do the new inhabitants of the city come from? What are they looking for? How do they influence the territory? What do they lose and what they earn moving here? And above all, what is it that makes them feel at home in Matera? We want to start this movie from the concept of home itself: how do we all decide what is home and where to live according to different cultures and aspirations?

From the “Sassi”, the typical houses dug into the calcarenitic rock, to the more modern part of the city, we also explore – thanks to a team of young architects – the evolution of urban architecture in Matera. Entering the houses of the new inhabitants of the city to discover rites, habits, dreams and fears that we only share where we feel more secure: between the walls of our own home.

PAPE is Senegalese. He arrived in Matera in 2010. In 2012, his wife and children joined him here. He graduated in Literature and hopes to have “a better future” than the one he could have dreamt of in Senegal. Today he is a cultural mediator in a center for unaccompanied minors, an institute in Paterno, a small center not far from Matera. He lives five days a week in the center and then, during the weekend, he returns home, in Matera, where he spends all his time with his family and his African community.
He was a vucumprà, a peddler who sold counterfeit products – bags, shoes – for a few euros a day. Today he is a fundamental resource for the social fabric of Matera.
