Casa Cava is not only a place but also a 'path' that has engaged and enthused many people for several years. A group motivated by passion for the area has realised its dream: to bring an extraordinary site back to light. Casa Cava, in fact, is the only underground cultural centre in the world, a prestigious auditorium for international architecture magazines, the symbol of Matera's historical parabola and cultural regeneration. A place born as a tuff quarry, then abandoned and used as a dump, finally transformed into a centre for youth creativity. Today, Casa Cava is an exceptional witness for the city that has been European Capital of Culture in 2019.
