The trip will offer you unique opportunities to take pictures in the wonderful Italian countryside in Puglia (Apulia) at the time when farmers pick up olives from trees. You will document the full process from time of harvest and extraction process, then traditional pressing whole olives and producing delicious olive oils. Of course you will have a chance to taste it on delicious Italian food.

You will also have the chance to experience Matera’s Christmas traditions. Matera has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1993, because it is “the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem” and in 2019 the title “European Capital of Culture” will be awarded to Matera. This city is famous for its cave dwellings, the so-called sassi. This workshop gives you the opportunity to experience the magical atmosphere of Matera made more fascinating by the living crib organized in the caves.
