Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Basilicata / Province of Matera / Matera / Casa Grotta di Vico Solitario
Take a look inside a Sassi cave dwelling at Casa Grotta di Vico Solitario. Use a guided audio tour to learn about what life was like inside a peasant dwelling. The home is complete with furniture and tools of the era, as well as a room for livestock. Used until 1959, when families living in the caves were transferred by government order to modern homes, the cave house includes four stories with steep narrow stairs, which were lived in by a family of 11 and their livestock. A black-and-white film offers a closer examination of what life was like here during the 1950s.
