This street art in Via Margutta which is just a few blocks away from Director Federico Fellini and Actress Giulietta Massina’s house in Rome perfectly sums up me slowly returning to social media after a bit of a hiatus. It was great to reenergise, refocus and spend some much needed time with family and friends and chipping away at some exciting projects. Hoping everyone else had a productive and relaxed start to the year. A presto! #Rome#Roma#LaDolceVita#Italia#DineWithDaniele
📍 Matera , Italy 🇮🇹
💡Interesting facts :
🔸It is known that before the Ancient Greeks and Romans appeared on the territory of contemporary Matera, an ancient Italian tribe called, Lucani, were the ones to dwell here. They were famous for their exceptionally combative nature: if they weren't fighting with their neighbors, they would serve Macedonians as mercenaries.
🔸Matera is indeed famous worldwide for its ancient cave houses and churches carved into stone. In 1993, the historical center of the town, Sassi – literally “Stones” – along with its ancient stone temples and frescoes in Byzantine style, became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Southern Italy.
