Italian language center BasilicataPotenza, capital city of Basilicata, is located in the upper valley of Basento, behind the Apennine Lucano. Of antique pre-Roman origins, it experienced all dominations of the peninsula and has suffered severe damage through relatively recent earthquakes and the bombardments of 1943. Potenza is nowadays an important communication center and has a vibrant cultural life and a university.
