Cognomi di Matera
The Surnames of Matera

The poster can be viewed in two ways: observation from afar whereby only the larger and most common surnames will be legible and close observation by immerging oneself in the literature only to discover a few surprises, such as the coexistence of foreign names alongside the more traditional.

The infographic was designed using the Open Data of the City of Matera.
