Becky Riches is half English and half Irish and lives in Matera (Italy). She happily accepts that her time studying in Modena, Italy, through the EU Erasmus programme transformed her life.
After years working in a multinational environment, she transformed her professional profile in support of a life choice to live in the South of Italy.
Since 2007 Becky has driven a sustainable tourism project, Lucania Living, specialised in welcoming new non-Italian homeowners, restoring abandoned rural villages, forging cultural bridges and harnessing the authenticity of Southern Italy to define a sustainable future.
In 2018 she joined the Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation that drove the rich cultural programme for Matera’s year as European Capital of Culture. She coordinated the Development and Relations team and was project manager for specific cultural artistic projects focused on citizen participation and inclusion. Becky is the Matera 2019 DeuS project manager and works on other cultural projects and initiatives.
