"Matera" is a rendition of an interior scene I encountered during a trip to Matera, Italy. The town of Matera is one of the oldest in the world, and boasts a rich, and sometimes brutal history. Known as "la Citta Sotterranea" (the Subterranean City), the buildings of its historical district are carved out of a limestone mountainside, creating a labyrinth the cave dwellings its citizens still inhabit.
