With a mission to preserve the culture, traditions, and history of Craco, the southern Italian hill town located in the Province of Matera and the region of Basilicata, The Craco Society seeks to reach individuals who are descendants of the townspeople by holding meetings and making periodic communications about the town and the townspeople. 

Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the objectives of The Craco Society.  The Society is international;  members are located in Canada, Italy and the United States of America.  We are affiliated with the National Italian American Foundation and the U.S. Association of the Basilicata Regional Council.

During the past year the Society has been the beneficiary of great support by members and friends, and now we are looking to you to join us too. Please consider the value of preserving the history, culture, and traditions of Craco. Perhaps, more importantly reflect on the impact of exposing your family to the unique heritage of the town and its people. With over 400 members we are a robust organization and planning a Reunion in New York next summer, as well as a celebration for San Vincenzo's 114th year in New York in October. Think of the experiences and discovery these events represent. Is there a better way for your family to understand where they came from and how they got here?

        Subscription to communications issued by the Society

        Support with research about Craco and family history

        Contact and information sharing with other members
