An Italian parliamentary decree of 1906 refers to the town of Melfi as an 'oasi nel deserto della Basilicata' (an oasis in the Basilicata desert). Centre of the ancient Lucanian culture in the 7th and 6th centuries B.C., capital of the county of Apulia in the Norman period, residence of Frederick II, whose castle is the most famous in the region, Melfi is not a stopover like any other and you don't stop there by chance... Although damaged by the earthquake of 1980, this city with a brilliant past has lost none of its character. Today it is a medieval town of great historical wealth, which can be visited on foot, and a modern and peaceful town which lives from its wine, its olives and its wood.
