Would you like to step back in time and experience the customs and traditions of rural culture for a few hours? Join us with this experience dedicated to the sense of touch!

This tour takes place in Laterza, within the walls of Palazzo Marchesale, a 16th century manor house made up of mostly coarse stones.

Laterza is a beautiful little town in the province of Taranto. A few kilometers from Matera, this place offers its visitors many attractions, starting from the historical center.

During this workshop, you will learn a lot about life in the past. Which games were played? Which tools were used? What was it like to live in a time when warming up meant sitting in front of a brazier and playing with pebbles and twigs?

Discover with us the habits and traditions of the past and pass on this knowledge.

During this workshop, you will not only experience the “emotions of other times”, but also learn how to make the typical handmade fresh Apulian pasta: “orecchiette” and “strascinati”.

Fully understanding the gastronomic past of a place means first of all looking for traditional and authentic ways of preparing food.

The local cuisine expresses the relationship between people and the available resources. In Apulia, it was characterized by rural culture, with fresh seasonal vegetables and field crops. The typical dishes from Apulia are pure, simple and enhance the quality of the vegetables grown under the Apulian sun.

Handmade pasta in Italy is a true tradition, from Trentino to Sicily. The recipes are passed from mother to daughter and are influenced by regional culture, local customs and the history of the places of origin.

Learn with us the secrets of preparing homemade pasta from Apulia! Discover the beauty and taste of simple things!

A small tasting of typical Apulian products completes the offer.
