Literary Park ‘Carlo Levi’
(66.5 km – 1 hour drive)

Aliano is located on a clay spur in the Calanchi (ravines) landscape between the Agri River and tributary Sauro. In this magical place you can find Carlo Levi’s house, a writer and painter who was exiled here during the fascist period. His book, Christ Stopped at Eboli, was written here and is considered to be his masterpiece. To honor the writer, a literary park donning his name was created, with many activities taking place year around.
