Basilicata shares common features with its neighbours especially Puglia, but it is the poor relative, being almost entirely mountainous, beset by floods and landslipes, and having only a short coastline where the mountains rise abruptly from the sea.

There is a saying in dialect that says it all “Cu’ si marita sta contentu ‘nu giornu, cu’ ammazza ‘u porcu sta contentu n’anno” which means “He who gets married is happy for a day, he who kills a pig is happy for a year.”
