It is a village rich in tradition and history, Satriano di Lucania, nestled between the slopes of three rocks: the Castle, the Piesco and the Madonna della Rocca, overlooking the banks of the Melandro river.
A village that was the birthplace of the painter Giovanni de Gregorio known as 'Il Pietrafesa' after the ancient name of the town, Satriano is famous as the 'mural capital of Southern Italy': in fact, there are more than 500 murals in the town centre, increasing every year.
The town also boasts the Accademia del Peperoncino Lucano (Lucanian Chilli Pepper Academy), a symbol of local gastronomy.
And finally, Satriano is its Carnival, a historical, archaic, extremely evocative carnival. It is one of the most famous events in the region and is centred on the figure of 'RUMIT', the Tree Man, and the Walking Forest, elements that narrate the importance of the land in the identity of this place.
