    Old town Matera before the rain

     
    Matera is an ancient town in southern Italy's Basilicata region. There's a whole part of town consisting of old rock dwellings (the "Sassi"), which were vacated in the 1950s but are now being restored in increasing numbers. These pictures were taken on a Sunday morning in May 2014, with buildings and people bathed in a milky, unnatural light just minutes before a heavy thunderstorm hit Matera and soaked its ubiquitous sandstone walls.
