The famous American directorFrancis Ford Coppola has lucanian origins. In this video he talks about Basilicata as testimonial and especially as lucan who remembers the stories when he was a child. BASILICATA Laghi Monticchio"We have a region of Italy that is still preserved, still authentic, still unpolluted." the director says, talking about the native land of his grandparents. He continues narrating the flavour, the smell of the wine-cellar which his grandfather, now in America, rebuilt in the floor of his house and even the "lampascioni" and dried peppers, the "gnumiriedd" and the sausage. And the wheat fields, the grass expanses, its ancient history, the genuineness of its people and its unique landscape.
The video "Basilicata autentica" was produced and directed by Michele Russo Salfi with overhead shots of the Region. The music is the ballad "Morrison's Jig", performed by Giuliana De Donno, a musician from Matera
