Matthew ‘Matty’ Brown, despite his taste for loopy hats, happens to be very good at creating videos. His, by his own admission, somewhat rushed video of the beautiful and virtually unknown Basilicata area of south Italy which he entered as part of a digital diary contest won the grand prize. Hearty congratulations to him for that.
I suppose you might like to see this prize wining video of Italy in all its glory, so here it is.
Mr Brown did an excellent job in capturing much of what Italy and Basilicata has to offer. It is to be hoped that his work helps attract attention to both his skill as a video maker and to his subject – Italy, even if it is not entirely clear from the video itself that the main subject is the Italian region of Basilicata. This Italian region is well off the beaten Rome, Florence, Venice tourist track, but is not too far from Naples. Basilicata is definaely worth exploring, filming and photographing.
After watching Dreaming Italy you may well end up, well, dreaming of a vacation in Italy. I hope so!
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I hope you liked it and if you did, you may be curious to know about the Italian region of Basilicata, which, it just so happens, have already written a little about: Basilicata
If you do visit this Italian region, you may well come across amazing places like Matera:
For the technically curious, Brown shot his video using a Canon 7d DSLR.
