“In Italy, Luxury Transforms Caves Into Hotels…

In 1945, when “Christ Stopped at Eboli” — Carlo Levi’s account of the extreme poverty in Basilicata — was published, it brought attention and shame to this forgotten region, sandwiched between Puglia and Calabria. A decade later, Mr. Di Cecce and about 15,000 other sassi dwellers were relocated to new low-income housing, and the ancient grotto homes were abandoned.

As I looked around the room that was once the home of a desperately poor family, I recalled something that the American humorist Finley Peter Dunne once said: “The past always looks better than it was because it isn’t here.”
