Matera is a tangle of narrow streets, squares, neighborhoods, caves, rock churches, wineries that plunge into the bowels of the earth, with houses partly excavated and partly built, with their roos that sometimes are like paths, sometimes like floor for other caves.

Back Office

I learned to ride a bike at 5, on a “Graziella”; soon after, however, I went to use the much more demanding “28” of my grandfather. Changing jobs every 10 years helps keep alive the stimuli and interests: this is why I abandoned the surveyor profession to devote myself to my greatest passion, bicycles.
