Lucania of the villages but in the summer also Lucania of the events. For some years now, the area near Maratea, therefore on the Tyrrhenian side, offers an increasingly successful appointment. As often happens on these occasions, the moment connected to the show becomes a pretext for the knowledge of a specific territorial area or of a country itself. Here is Nemoli, a small village. Here, for three years, it has its seat "La signora del lago" (the lady of the lake), where the lake is the Sirino, the spectacular prince of this area.
Precisely "Suoni e luci dall'Acqua" (Sounds and lights of the water) is the name of the show for the summer 2018, signed by the director Gianpiero Francese.
The first will be August 3rd. Free show, staged the weekends of August with three performances on Fridays and Saturdays and two performances on Sundays, starting at 9pm.
"We managed to obtain a 200 thousand euro loan from the Basilicata Region to give continuity to our project thanks to the results obtained in the two previous seasons", commented the mayor of Nemoli, Domenico Carlomagno.
The show lasts 25 minutes, "a springboard for the new format that will debut in 2020", organizers know. A sort of fantasy in a musical key, it has as its protagonist a child struggling with the suffering of absence.
A huge park with the latest generation of dancing fountains, water screens and geysers of over sixty meters. Sixty also the protagonists on the scene, between actors and actors.
Texts by the same Frenchman and Nino D'Agata.

Interesting village, Nemoli. Worth a visit is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, built in 1600. Inside there is a Byzantine polychrome statue of the Madonna, dated back to the 14th century. The rose window created in the Florentine artistic glass style is particularly beautiful. A church also near the lake, known as "the Church of the Sirino", with a beautiful Christ of the master craftsmen of Ortisei.
At Nemoli, singing traditions linked to the tarantella. Instrumental rites that told and told religious or agricultural events.
Special tools are created on the occasion of Holy Week and then of the most playful rites of Carnival.
An area of interest also for the nearby Maratea. And then also Trecchina, Lauria, Lagonegro. All in the province of Potenza. But at a stone's throw you are also, descending, in Calabria, high Tyrrhenian Cosenza: Scalea and Praia a Mare. And also the Pollino Cosenza is not far away, think of the lovely and petite Papasidero, with the possibility of trekking on the river Lao and its famous cave with prehistoric graffiti dating back to the Paleolithic. Watercourse, the Lao, which with the name Mercure was born in the not far from Viggianello (again Pz, alto Pollino). From Maratea quickly reached also the Salerno Cilento of Sapri: a strip of territory, this, which does not allow the direct territorial embrace between Campania and Calabria. There is precisely Maratea in the middle and with it the other nearby cities. Among these, our Nemoli with its lake and its show.
