  • Aliano (at 497 m) is spectacularly positioned on a hill between the River Agri and its tributary the Sauro, surrounded by deep gullies and chasms carved into the sedimentary rock. Eeking out a living, farmers living in the town still town trek down to the valleys below to tend their small fields and gardens, returning every day up the same well trodden paths. The village is surrounded by olive groves and the wonderful giardini di Aliano - mostly peach and citrus orchards, which produce a wonderful airborne scent. Between May 1935 and October 1936, Carlo Levi, philospher and polemicist, was sent into forced internal exile by the Mussolini's Fascist regime which he criticized to great effect. He wrote his seminal work, a kind of diary he titled Christ Stopped in Eboli about Lucania - this part of Basilicata - and his stay in Aliano, calling it "Gagliano". Levi was buried in Aliano, at his own request, after he died in 1975. The house he lived in stands at the entrance to the village.

  • The name of the village derives from the Latin Praedium Allianum, ie farm belonging to Allius. For its position near to rivers Agri and Sinni, since ancient times it was an important trade center among the Greeks, Etruscans and Italic peoples. Some sources speak of a village of shepherds existing at the time of Pyrrhus, in 280 BC. In the 8th century the various caves in sedimentary alluvial rocks located in the ditch San Lorenzo, already inhabited in prehistoric times, housed many monks escaped from the iconoclastic persecutions in the East. The earliest texts where Aliano is officially quoted date to 1060 AD, when a papal bull the administration of the village gave to the Bishop of Tricarico. In the Middle Ages Aliano was a fief of different families, including the Sanseverino, Carafa and the Colonna.

  • The Calanchi di Aliano not only offer an extraordinary landscape to contemplate, imagining how the "caress" of time and wind has shaped the "cathedrals" of clay that constitute them, but it is also the context suitable for outdoor activities among nature and culture. So lovers of trekking, walking along impervious paths, unique details, sweet sounds and pure air can live experiences that no other place can allow. The routes to discover the badlands represent a journey through nature and culture organized to know the historical places of Levian, in the country, and then cross the entire landscape, touching the dusty and rugged clay, between climbs and descents, dirt roads, almost violating the secrets and freedom. Along these paths, you can go to the discovery to discover authentic farms, deep ditches, that leave in the eyes and in the heart fantastic images, almost legendary, that everyone can interpret according to their sensitivity.

  • Deep gorges open up into the landscape and imposing pyramids impose themselves on the view of those who cross the splendid scenery of the Calanques of Aliano, among the most beautiful in Europe. "... and all around other white clay without trees and without grass, dug by water in holes, in cones, pands of malign appearance; like a lunar landscape ... and from all sides there were only precipices of white clay, on which the houses were like hovering in the air ". This is how he describes the Calanques by Aliano Carlo Levi in ​​"Christ stopped at Eboli". And it is not so far from those stories of a "world without time and without history" that continues to live in the harsh yet romantic "lunar" landscape, as defined by Levi himself, rendered by imposing sculptures of clay. As in all the south-eastern Basilicata, between the valleys of Sauro, Agri and Basento, the Calanchi di Aliano are the window on a world apart, emblematic and evocative, melancholic and captivating, where you want to stop, fix a point on infinity and let go to thoughts and feelings. As happens in the presence of the Fossa del Bersagliere, right near the town of Aliano, a deep and suggestive precipice.

  • Every corner in this pretty village tells of Carlo Levi and his exile here, in the years 1935-36, because of his anti-fascist activity. But in Aliano other places speak to the visitor who, curious, wants to discover and remember ... Starting from the Literary Park that bears the name of the painter and doctor from Turin. For the visitor who, curious, wants to discover and remember the so-called "Levian places", reach the pretty village of Aliano allows you to embark on a suggestive itinerary, from the Casa di Confino to the Pinacoteca, and then aim at the Museum of rural civilization and artistic nativity scene of the master Francesco Artese. Inspired by the book "Christ stopped at Eboli", written by Carlo Levi to tell the dramatic experience of the confinement lived in Basilicata, between Grassano and Aliano, the Literary Park, set up inside the village surrounded by the extraordinary scenery of the ravines, offers to the visitor a path that refers to the permanence of the Piedmontese poet and painter in the Lucanian land.

  • Important center of exchanges between the Greek, Etruscan and enotria civilizations, as it results from the discovery of a necropolis (VII-VI century BC), whose finds are now kept in the Siritide Museum of Policoro, Aliano probably existed already in the times of Pirro (280 BC), but the first sources that speak of it officially date back to 1060. In the eighth century basilic monks took refuge among the different caves dug into the sedimentary rocks of the San Lorenzo ditch, already inhabited in prehistoric times, while in the Middle Ages Aliano it was a fief of the Sanseverino families, the Carafa and the Colonna families.

  • Here is still the house where Carlo Levi spent his exile and who, together with the Pinacoteca, the Museum of the peasant civilization and the artistic crib of the master Francesco Artese, falls into the Literary Park that took its name. And here Carlo Levi drew inspiration for his masterpiece "Christ stopped at Eboli". Particularly suggestive are the alleys, the small squares, the houses that characterize Aliano, like the so-called Casa del Malocchio, with a human face, according to popular beliefs with the function of keeping negative influences away.

  • Aliano is the village of the Calanchi and the confinement of Carlo Levi, immersed in an evocative and lunar landscape, also for this reason it is part of "The authentic villages of Italy". "I opened a French door, I looked out on a balcony, from the dangerous eighteenth-century railing of iron and, coming from the shadow of the interior, I was almost blinded by the sudden dazzling whiteness. Below me was the ravine; in front of the infinite expanse of dry clays, without any sign of human life, wavering in the sun as far as the eye could see, so far, far away, they seemed to melt into the white sky. " So, now eighty years ago, Aliano presented himself in the eyes of Carlo Levi, and so today appears the village perched on a clayey spur, in which he still lives the memory of the painter and doctor from Turin, who lived here part of his confinement conquering the trust and affection of the "villagers", up to choose to be buried in the cemetery of the small village.

  • The economy is based mainly on agriculture and pastoralism; the village is surrounded by orchards of olive trees that make a flourishing industry for the production of olive oil, fruit orchards (in particular orchards and citrus groves), and you will practice the rearing of goats and sheep. The presence of the archaeological remains of the Neolithic and the tomb of Carlo Levi make the country which is important from the point of view of tourism-cultural. In fact for the tracks are engraved passages from the book Christ Stopped at Eboli and residence and the places narrated in the book remained intact.

  • In the VIII century the different caves dug in the sedimentary rocks of alluvial origin situated in the area of Fosso San Lorenzo, already inhabited in the prehistoric age, entertained numerous Basilian monks escaped to the iconoclastic persecutions in the East. In the medieval era Aliano was the fief of various families, including the Sanseverino, the Carafa and the column. In the recent history of this small center we cannot fail to mention the writer Carlo Levi that ambientò here the book Christ Stopped at Eboli (1945). Levi during the fascist regime in the years 1935-36 was condemned to exile in Lucania because of its anti-fascist activities and spent a long period in Basilicata, first Grassano and subsequently to Aliano (which in the book is called Gagliano, imitating the local pronunciation), where he had the opportunity to know the reality of that land and its people.

  • Aliano is a hill top town south west of Craco famed for its peculiar houses made only of raw clay and set in the beautiful clay landscape known as the Badlands or ‘lunar landscape’. The cliff faces are made from white clay and sand which reach immense heights, and the surrounding valleys are characterised by water erosion and ravine.

  • Aliano is 94 km far from Matera, coming towards first you find the badlands. Levi used to say: “The endless expanse of dry clay, without a sign of human life, waving under the sun as far as eyes could see, far away, far away, they could melt in the white sky”. It is an amazing place, it looks like the Cappadocia in Turkey. The same geological context: a clay soil with water flowing on, digging deep grooves. Then the sun burns and creates some kind of wrinkles on the ground, where the water can infiltrate. It ends turning into many sharp and bare ridges, like a moonscape, charming and empty, where just the goats can graze. Around the badlands, there is some fertile land: these are flat expanses where only arable crops and some olive groves can rise, useful to get just a few olive oil. That’s all with agriculture, but many tourists come to visit this unique land. During the Summer the weather is too hot, while when it rains everywhere gets slippery for the thin layer of salt. Such a fragile environment.

  • Even a corner of garbage can look attractive in the right light. I can imagine removing the barrales and putting in patio with a bistro set and adding windows to the the front for better light. A fixer upper but one O would gladly take on.
