Invaded from all sides for millennia, bombarded during the World War II, living with the curse of the Mafia and suffering one of the highest unemployment rates in Europe-Italy's deep south is its poorest region. This reality has always been reflected in the local cuisine, home to some of the most delicious cheeses and meats in southern Italy. Join us for a discussion about the foods and food culture of Basilicata, the region home to Matera.
