around murge

around murge is a series of events, experiences and stories, that enhances the people and places of the MURGE. It is a project by TIPICI.ORG


With murge we refer to the rolling hills on the border between Puglia and Basilicata. We talk about a territory and landscapes that have something magical: nature predominates; the spaces are really wide; the colors alternate as the days alternate; the winds never stop blowing; there is water but it is not noticed too much; people are industrious and welcoming.

They are a karst plateau that emerged from the sea millions of years ago and has been shaped by man; there are many civilizations that have succeeded until today finding ways to tame wild lands; you can discover and experience Murge around cities, countryside, museums, companies and much more.


TIPICI.ORG activates contaminations between agrifood, art and handicraft through projects that are able to generate social impact or rather which are able to generate a positive change in our society.
