The event will be held Wednesday, July 9, at 5 p.m., in Matera, in a truly unique location: the underground of St. Francis square (Piazza San Francesco). Located under the main square of the city and brought to light a few years ago, ‘ipogeo’ includes a number of underground rooms containing also an old tank, called the long Palombaro.
‘It is a great honor. Matera is a serious and authoritative candidate to become European Capital of Culture in 2019. The South and our country in general want to show that change is possible and it is through the support of research and the quality of things’ Peppe Zullo says. It’s the same concept that Peppe Zullo, a few days ago, showed to 10 students from the Rhode Island University. American students made ​​a stop in Villa Jamele, the property of the Apulian chef, to explore the themes of their summer course in anthropology under the project “Sustainable agriculture and local food cultures of Italy.
‘In Matera as in the United States and around the world there is a new culture, a message that I’m spreading for about 30 years: food is happiness, it can be for everyone if we learn to respect the nature and the vocations of the territory,’ Zullo added.
