I hope, first, that this letter will be received in a moment of serenity in your life.

Certainly the social emergency, which has also invested our little Community, is a cause of anxiety and concern for a troubled world, especially for the younger generation.

We know, but, by memories faded by time, but still vivid in the memory, that, in this land so beautiful for the harshness of its landscape and so poignant for the proud and dignified simplicity of the generations that preceded us, lives a people accustomed to sacrifice and hard life. A simple people in appearance, but noble in heart and soul; humble in behavior, but aristocratic feelings; silent and austere, but also hospitable and generous.

This legacy, will engage the will and determination of our young, that face life with optimism and confidence to implement a planning often so difficult to realizzare.Una community, our, "Naturally religious", which welcomes around the Blessed Virgin of Bruna to find relief to their afflictions and to be entrusted with dreams and hopes for the future.

And that's why the Association Mary. Bruna, Referring to those historical values ​​and ethical, that have been handed down by our ancestors, is intended to have a determining role, not only for the city of Matera, but also for the municipalities of the Archdiocese, placing itself at the service of the community in order to provide confidence and serenity.

The goal you want to achieve with our project "WALK TOGETHER" is to see that our city protagonist on the international scene. For centuries, the "longest day" of the Stone City is the Two in July, that everyone is waiting with anxiety and trepidation, when the city was hit by an irrepressible joy, long waiting for all year, in which successive moments of madness and devotion, illuminations and prayers, assaults and sacredness.

Chairman's letter to the Mayor of the City Andrisani’ for the project Matera 2019

The congratulations of the Association for the rest of the way of the City’ of Matera – candidate for European Capital of Culture in 2019

& Nbsp;

????????Dear Senator,

I feel the need, on my own behalf as well as’ on behalf of the Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and all members of the Association, to express more’ congratulations for the great success as a result of the continuation of the journey of our City’ towards the ambitious goal of "EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE – YEAR 2019 ".

I believe that every materano tried thrill, and that’ continued for the whole day of 13 November U.S., to note with what commitment and determination and how’ was represented the candidacy of the city of Matera to the European Commission.

Certainly, were rekindled historical values ​​and ethics that distinguish our people: tenacity and sacrifice of our ancestors, accustomed to hard work in the fields and herding, eating bread and sun, to live in caves painstakingly carved into the tufa, were a stimulus, and will continue to be, up to the prestigious goal and the final victory, which must be a success, not only of Matera, but also the entire province and all of Basilicata.

My thoughts, but and’ also that of all the components of the Association, goes to the cornerstones that will allow Matera to become European Capital of Culture: and the SASSI “PARTY” in honor of Maria SS. Bruna, two pearls that for centuries have allowed our city’ to be known and appreciated in Europe and the world becoming a world heritage site’ of which in the coming days marks the 20th Anniversary. My personal commitment together with that of members of the Association is aimed at giving a significant signal to the next editions of the “PARTY”, that can not’ be limited to a short period of time, with events that often overlap, but must be extended to the whole field, expressing particular religious values, cultural and ethical issues arising from our traditions, which are still unknown to many.

I assure you that we are willing to accept the challenge and, stubborn as we are, ready to win. For this we would like to be considered privileged partners for a major project, see that the Association Mary. Bruna's protagonist and organizer of events and folk events and cultural, as well as religious in support of the candidacy. Thanking you for your attention, I express, on behalf of the entire Association, the most’ fervent, felt and sincere wishes for a happy and fruitful work in the interests of our community '.
