Matera 2019 – Emotional Map2019-01-31T10:44:09+00:00

Traveling through the soul of a place 

This is a project conceived by the “Teatro dei Sassi” which aims to create an unprecedented way of visiting our city, via the use of Emotional Maps created through a collection of memories and stories of the town’s inhabitants and eventually, of the visitors themselves. Thanks to these special maps, travelers can communicate with the town and expand their travel experience through a multi-sensory journey in several stages. Matera is the first town to experiment with this method

400 of Matera’s inhabitants have already been involved in these emotional mappings: from 10 year-olds to 80 year-olds, these are people who have created their own emotional maps, through narrations and drawings, telling stories about those places in the town where emotionally significant events of their lives occurred. The invitation remains open to all those who want to make their own map, accessible on this site. After a process of selection and literary and artistic transformation, we will define an emotional mother map made up of 15 places throughout Matera. From March to July 2019, an artistic synthesis of the project will be visible in “The secretissima camera de lo core”, a site-specific multisensory installation.

THE WRITER ALESSANDRO BARICCO AND THE HOLDEN SCHOOL OF TURIN, THE VISUAL ARTIST STEFANO FARAVELLI, AUTHOR OF THE FAMOUS CARNET OF TRAVEL, AND THE DANCER AND GERMAN CHOREOGRAPH HEIKE HENNIG WILL ALL COLLABORATE TO WORK ON THE PROJECT. STEFANO FARAVELLI WILL ALSO BE THE CURATOR OF THE ROOM, IN COLLABORATION WITH PAOLO BARONI, ARTISAN OF LIGHT AND THE IDEATOR OF THE MACHINES THEATER.  ARTISTIC DIRECTION WILL BE DONE BY MASSIMO LANZETTA.

Once visitors (who are transitory inhabitants) have arrived in town, they can begin their journey through “The secretissima camera de lo core”, divided into several spaces, where the memories of the inhabitants will come to life to communicate the soul of these places. The traveler, once back home, will choose the right time to process their entire travel experience and share it, through the Atlas website, with all the other emotional travelers.
