  • Visiting Matera there is a memorial site that everyone should know: the Museo Laboratorio della Civiltà Contadina. It may be the presence of a cat that is approaching or has a place next to the front door or ... irrepressible personality and unconventional of David Cardenas who invites you to enter his world, aware of the emotional impact that it can ' give '. And so you find yourself following a cat, a Pied Piper and a desire to know and go into what you might have been thinking of eliminating between ' things must do in Matera. We are in and do you see things already seen but .... the voice takes you inside a library (I love them) and picking up a real interest but not expressed myself mistress of 3 books (The playing time. From the bow, peering into the sea. Dream patch) and willing to buy a fourth: the tales of the Museum. And then the result is a path you might want to do, that you would have chosen if someone had put in front of the options, a route that can be done alone or with others, but in any case only you will never. You're with all the characters who flock in front of your eyes: the setacciaio Gerber, the basket-maker, the cavamonti, the shoe shine, the Barber, the Carver, the cabinet maker, master shipwright, the conciapiatti, the stonemason ... ... And you fall in love with those faces of woman, child, man and images their stories through an instrument, a game, a garment. And read these men don't laughed and talked when it was needed, were not gentle with their women: were incapable of caresses and words of love. ' '.... Clean my child: I have to season the beans in the pot, because your dad is back from the fields and hungry ... ' ' There are hands that speak, transform the formless matter, know the trouble. ' ... where goods are privileged to very few, and most have nothing, neither roof nor hut, or plow, nor clothes, only the rump and toils from Niggers, there's the highwayman ' In this museum there are absolutely everyone, there is also the priest's room (as you enter and then we saw her before heading out) where stands a Marinetti of the first 900. And then if it is true that words fly in the wind but need to communicate hope this my impressions lead to say "Yes indeed the Museo Laboratorio della Civiltà Contadina is run by David and Anna Cardenas and Barbara Eramo is one of the must see things in Matera"

  • Finally a museum about the present, because he thinks the political memory as something that needs to come to grips with how the past has been told and with what purposes. Thanks to David for being a memory resistant and have the strong will to do so others understand.

  • It was not so much the opportunity to see objects from the past that speak of a condition maybe lost, rather respect for the dignity of that same condition and admiration for those values maybe outdated but that both deserve to be rediscovered, which Donated Cardew was able to transmit his words and, above all, with its atypical and passionate way of inhabiting this precious place.

  • This museum is the result of 30 years of work of Mr.Carlos welcome you and answer all your questions about life in the sassi. The laboratory museum recreates the environments of those who once lived in the sassi with ' objects, furniture and pictures. It's a real blast from the past. I recommend it to all visitors. The Council also read the book of short stories translated into English Museum that collects testimonies of those who lived in the sassi.
