The city that conquered cinema in Maurizio Rellini's latest photos

In the heart of the Italian region of Basilicata, Matera stands as a fascinating treasure chest of history and beauty.
Its ancient and evocative caves, dug into the limestone rock, and the characteristic stones that make up the landscape, have made this city an iconic film set.
Among the most famous films shot in Matera is Mel Gibson's masterpiece, "The Passion of the Christ", which used the city as a setting to recreate the historical context of 1st century Palestine. Equally memorable was the set of "Ben-Hur", the epic film that saw the city transformed into the Jerusalem of antiquity, not to mention "007 - No Time to Die" which brought James Bond to the streets of Matera.
