THE STORY The people of Matera are tired of the tyranny of the Matera Count Giancarlo Tramontano. Today is the 29 Decembre 1514 and we all are called to come in front of the Castle of Matera. Brunetta, a courageous daughter of the gunsmith of Matera, has gathered the most intrepid citizens of Matera to promote a riot to overthrow and oust the evil and hated Count.

Also, you, come immediately as time is our enemy! And bring arms and sticks to make legendary this moment, so important for our city of Matera.

You will find out the reasons for which the Castle of Tramontano had remained incomplete, will relive the feelings which moved the population to hunt the tyrant who had tired the people of Matera and feelings which bothered the people with the Count’s manias of power and conquest; you will enjoy a guided visit along the streets of the Duomo of Matera.
