“The 2004 Mel Gibson release “The Passion of the Christ” was filmed there, as was Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “The Gospel According to St. Matthew,” 40 years earlier. When I visited there was a wonderful exhibit about Pasolini and the film. In one room, still images from the film were superimposed with shots of the same spots from today. Matera’s latest epic is “Ben-Hur,” whose stars include Morgan Freeman, which began filming last month”.
