About us

Fabio, Giuseppe and Angela

Travel To Matera was born by the idea of three young guys of telling about their own city, Matera.

We want talk about it to everyone interested in; a city of 9000 years of history at the back. Our mission is declinated through different tools. First of all the blog site, through which we try to send the most important inputs: curiosity and interest in this place.

In addition to the blog, we want make possible living the “experience” of our city. Typical accomodation, settlement of touristic supply and info service.

So, we intend developing, through an innovative, open and fluid frame, the idea of doing business on our region, with it and for it.

Fabio, 23 years old, graduated in Economics&Marketing, I’m attending a Master’s Degree at the University of Milan-Bicocca. I come back home as soon as possible, usually in-between an exam and the following one, because I deeply love my land, its traditions and culture. In the blog Travel to Matera I write informative posts just to let you know the beauty and magnificence of my land. Actually, that is what I usually do every day with my friends and colleagues: I take any occasion to talk them about my town and my region. I’m very interested in politics, football and social media too. Follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin.

Giuseppe, 34 years old, Fabio’s brother and Angela’s love and business patner, I have been managing “Sapori dei Sassi” for six years, an e-shop selling food and wine from Southern Italy (by means of an e-commerce website); however, Sapori dei Sassi is also a brick and mortar store located in the heart of the Sassi of Matera.  I am also a blogger, I mainly deal in wine. To me Travel to Matera represents another exciting challenge to win, I will write posts on this blog, I will organize the tourist hospitality and I will keep on searching for more accomodation facilities.

Angela, 30 years old, Giuseppe’s partner for ages, graduated in Modern Languages, I speak English fluently, Spanish (a little bit less) and French (as much as neeeded).  I usually do the same as Giuseppe, maybe even more. Travel to Matera, to me, is the chance to talk about the town I love more than any other in the world, that is Matera, my hometown.
