Satriano di Lucania is located south west of Potenza, on the edge of the Parco Nazionale dell Appennino Lucano Val d’Agri-Lagonegrese. Giovanni de Gregorio, more often known as il Pietrafesa, and one of Basilicata’s most famous painters, was born here. He was very active in the early half of the 17th century and the Chapel of San Giovanni contains work by him in the form of frescoes painted above the altar.
