The Puglia/Molise region
Apulia is an a cradle for ancient civilizations. Prehistoric graffitos in Porto Badisco caves, important traces of the Messapi civilization, the 7 towns of Greek Salento: all of them represent the last existing signs of Graecia Magna.
Apulia, a land of dominations. Nobiliary mansions, towns and squares designed by emperors who left their mark in history. Apulia, a pagan and religious land. Taranta, the traditional dance of Salento, and religious processions tell the story of a civilization and of its relationship with its own territory.
In Bari and Brindisi provinces, stones and buildings tell the story of this land. Appia and Traiana roads once connecting the city to Rome left their traces on modern roads. In this city, where Virgil died, there are the remains of two II –century columns that marked the end of Appia road.
The Norman – Swabian and Angevin mark also prevails in the inland area of province and former Messapi land, while it is even more evident in Mesagne, Oria and Ceglie Messàpica castles. In this area, natural landscape is characterized by ravines and caves shaped through centuries by the patient work of rivers. Rock witnesses of basilian monk civilizations can be found near Ostuni. Watch towers north of Brindisi tell the story of pirate and Saracen invasions, while the remains of ancient Egnazia Roman city can be seen in the respective archeological site.
The Alberobello / Trulli District area
Alberobello is the town of Puglia, in ancient times known as Apulia, which is renowned for its trulli, which characterize the town and its surrounding landscape.
The history of this unusual town dates back to the second half of the XVI century, when, being a little feud under the control of the Acquaviva family, Counts of Conversano, it began to be filled up with farmers who made the Selva (so called) "Sylva aut nemus arboris belli" a fruitful land.
Alberobello, City of the Trulli, occupies a land rich of calcareous rocks laminated, offer the material of construction that makes it unique not only the image of the same Alberobello but throughout the prettamenete Adjacent To Alberobello.
The Counts authorized the colonists to build dry dwellings, in order to get them easily pulled down in case of royal inspection; as a matter of fact, according to the 'Prammatica de Baronibus', the birth of an urban conglomeration required the payment of a tax. This trick allowed then to spare this unjust tax.. It was the year 1797 and a group of brave people from Alberobello, tired of their precarious condition, went to Taranto to ask for help to king Ferdinando IV of Bourbons who listened and made a promise.
On the 27th of may 1797, the king sent a Decree by means of which the little village became free. The trullo dwellings are dominated by the external use of sheets, the "chiancole", which cover the conic roof and create a wonderful urban centre, unique in the world, that today everybody come and admire.
Today Alberobello and the Trulli are recognized World Heritage of the Umanity from UNESCO.
