Mrrzy will be too late for this, but it's impressive.

Matera City of Culture 2019

You have probably seen Matera on film - it was the setting for Pasolini's The Gospel of Matthew and Mel Gibson's The Passion. It dates back to the Neolithic: the only place like it I've been to was Hasankeyf in Turkey (recently almost totally demolished by the Erdogan regime on the pretext of building the Ilisu Dam). For their City of Culture year, Matera put on some great modern art exhibitions. There was one particularly effective one where a photographer constructed paired photographs, one half shot in Matera and the other in places in Jordan, where the people in each picture appeared to be interacting with each other - rather like that artist who built seesaws into Trump's wall so that kids on the American and Mexican sides could play together.

Matera will still be worth visiting after the City of Culture stuff is over.
