It is situated in contrada Murgia Timone (Matera belvedere) in the rural buildings of Jazzo Gattini and Masseria Radogna.
According to some oral accounts, the iazzo was built in the late 19th century in order to give shelter to sheep and goats and, subsequently, also to cows. Its rectangular planimetry includes the front rooms where the milk processing was carried out and the products were preserved at first, as well as the house of the shepherd (or the farmer and the shepherds helping him) with the characteristic fireplace that has been walled up with the renovation of the iazzo. Behind these premises there is a large outdoor courtyard delimited by dry-stone walls. The original interior floors consisting of calcareous terraces has remained covered with manure until the iazzo acquired its sheepfold function. The indoor stable completes the sheepfold, delimiting it in the north. It consists of a series of round arches covered with a roof.
The Masseria, also called Casino Radogna, is a rural structure built in the late 19th century and, like many other country chalets, it represented the holiday house of the rich local families.
