La Secretissima camera de lo core

The Secretissima camera de lo core“ officially opened the 23rd and 24th of March 2019, is about to be open to visitors again.

The project “Atlas of the emotions of the cities 1. La Secretissima camera de lo core”, has met with great success. This is attested by the conspicuous international press review (over 70 newspapers, for a potential number of over 11,000,000 readers), the attention that the national and European media have paid to the project, the unanimous consent of the personalities of the local cultural world , nationally and internationally, of the citizens of Matera and above all the number of presences recorded from 23 March, the day of its official opening, until 23 December 2019, the last day of extraordinary opening.

In four months of official opening and another four months of extraordinary openings (over 100 openings in total), over 2,700 people of all ages, genders and nationalities have crossed our labyrinth of emotions set up on the fourth floor of the Provincial Library of Matera. The comment letters that many visitors have given us at the end of their visit express the desire and hope that La secretissima will become a permanent opportunity to get to know the city of Matera in an immersive and exciting way.

Even personalities such as Marino Sinibaldi and Alessandro Baricco, enthusiastic about the exhibition, have expressed themselves in this sense, considering the permanence as the natural evolution of a project that starts from the bottom up involving over 400 citizens, creating a full-bodied and significant archive of 400 emotional maps and 4000 stories, in addition to the 40 artworks and 15 original stories produced.

For this reason we have decided, in collaboration with the Matera municipal administration, to rearrange La Secretissima camera de lo core in the halls of Palazzo Acito, a seventeenth-century building located in the heart of the Sasso Barisano di Matera, which we have called

“The Palace of Emotions”

Very soon you will be able to book and be amazed.

A dense, delicate and extraordinary path in memory and in the present. Compliments

Mysterious and fascinating. Emotions that take the visitor’s soul, truly wonderful exhibition.

So much wonder, so much restlessness, so much emotion, so much commitment, so much work, so much passion. In simplicity, the most ferocious complexity and the most sophisticated technology. A nice gift for matera!

Ma quanto è meravigliosa questa mostra? Meraviglia infinita!
Finalmente si racconta l’anima della mia amata città.

how wonderful is this exhibition? Endless wonder!
Finally the soul of my beloved city is told.

I will come back here, to this ‘room’ of my heart, every time I get lost
