Matera and its Hill (MT) - Living-room Furniture District

The living-room furniture manufacturing district is situated on the border between Basilicata and Puglia.

It originated in Matera, where in the late 1960s Pasquale Natuzzi began producing retro furniture.

The first small factory of living-room furniture dates from 1967.

The Natuzzi group has been quoted in New York Exchange since 1993 and is the world leader in the production of leather sofas.

In addition to Natuzzi, Calia Salotti of Matera and Nicoletti Salotti of Matera, other living-room furniture manufacturers can be found in the ‘triangle’.

Near these factories, a lot of induced activity factories have appeared, small enterprises specialised in production stages such as leather processing, sewing and padding cutting.
