TEDx IN MATERA

Line Spacing+- AFont Size+- Print This Article

On the 20th May 2014 TEDx arrived in Matera, Basilicata in Southern Italy for an exploration into the link between the past and present. Ancient Future, the title of the TEDx talk was brought to Matera to provoke thought and stimulate discussion in what seems to be areas of apparent contrast. Matera, the third oldest city in the world beautifully displays this as it houses the centre for space research.

TEDx, is an independently organised event that focuses on local voices bringing their expertise to the table. Speakers at the event included Denise Cumella, Federico Valicenti and Angelo Inglese.

Partnership with APT Basilicata, Matera2019, National Geographic Italia, Wired and many more allowed for this one day conference to be an overwhelming success.

Matera is currently shortlisted to become the European City of Culture 2019. The whole region of Basilicata is behind the city as a well-deserved contender for the title. The selection panel who decide whether Matera will go forward for final selection will meet again in the third quarter of 2014.
