In the year of the European Capital of Culture Matera will become rainbow colored for one day.

Saturday the 20th Matera will have its first Pride.

The program of the event - both the marching path and the final party - which is undergoing final examination by the relevant authorities, is the following: 

- The meeting point is at 4 pm in Via Don Luigi Sturzo (in the square where buses depart from), departure will be at 5 pm.

- The parade will walk through Via Nazionale, Via Annunziatella, Via Lucana, Via Roma and arrive in Piazza della Visitazione around 8 pm, where the closing party will take place. 

The singer Marco Carta and the transexual Manila Gorio are the two guests chosen by the organizers for the Matera Heroes Pride 2019.

During the year of the European Capital of Culture the city will be colored by a rainbow, for one day.

This year we celebrate 50 years from the Stonewall riots, which opened the path for protests all around the world to achieve equal rights for LGBT people. To this celebration we unite the celebration for the 50 years since the first landing on the moon, through the marvelous meaning that these two moments share: 

“When you look at the earth from space, in an abstract way, you perceive very clearly the sense of community that we share, as humans on the same planet”. This words are by the astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti. And this is what we want to happen in Matera on the 20th of July in Matera: for one day we want the city to be a place where human beings ask, in a joyful yet aware manner, respect and freedom for all human beings, no-one excluded. And we want for this claim to became a permanent aspect of the city’s identity. 

In Matera the 20th of July will be a day of freedom integration and joy. 

This event is part of the festival “Matera seen from the moon” by Matera 2019
