You can touch the old life of Matera residence.
This is a museum incorporating many articles that were utilized for daily life until the 1950s. There is an audio tape in a variety of languages. You can see the segregation of areas within the one living quarter. The only things that seem to be missing are the humidity and the smells. Gives you a sense of how bad things really were. A must stop in Matera.
