“Expo Dubai will showcase our Country’s recovery: an important moment that will see Basilicata and the whole of the Mezzogiorno in the forefront,” said the president of the Basilicata Region, Vito Bardi, to describe the Region’s presence at the Italy Pavilion at the upcoming Universal Expo.
Speaking of the films of the Italian territory to be shot by Oscar-winning film director Gabriele Salvatores and screened at the Italy Pavilion during the 6-month Expo, Bardi added: “In the Belvedere Section, the videos will show: Matera, the Astronomical Observatory at Anzi and the Calanchi (Badlands). For the Regional Monograph: the Crusco (crispy) Pepper (Senise), honey (Ripacandida), handicrafts (Matera, Calvello and Pietrapertosa) and the automotive supply chain at Melfi.”
“I am sure – concluded the Regional President – that Salvatores’s storytelling will succeed to highlight the intimate beauty of the Basilicata Region which unbridles its full strength in wedding its Nature with its citizens’ commitment”.
