18.  The white house, Il Sassi, Matera
18. The white house, Il Sassi, Matera

Two ravines run through the south Italian city of Matera and in these were built the “Sassi” which in essence are caves with a built-up front. Most of these were abandoned in the 60’s and 70’s - some forcibly. But now restoration is under way and studios and small businesses thrive in what is increasingly seen as a fashionable district.
