On our first evening in Matera we learned that there was a music festival happening that weekend. We were walking around the piazza and it was packed with Italians, lots of fun and very animated.

A real gathering place for Materians and their families. We were there at dusk; it was fascinating to sit and watch the men/women/children trolling and engrossed in loud/animated conversations. It's right at the main entrance to Sassi.

This is now one of my favorite Italian piazzas, on par with the main piazza in Siena and others. Under a full moon on a soft May night, it was magical!

We absolutely loved the view of Sassi throughout the day - morning, afternoon, evening and night. Especially, if you go there around 6-7 pm, you can enjoy an amazing view of Sassi under the setting sun.
