Alberobello

  

Alberobello is the village of trulli. This peculiar building has a circular shape and a conical roof. Being built with stones it is very fresh in summer, so that it protects both people, if used as dwelling, and goods if used as storehouse. Traditionally no cement was used for building: the dry-stone walls technique is an ancient art that is diffused also in Liguria, another Italian region. Today many trulli have been restored and transformed in tourist accommodation or shops: the village has somehow lost its purity, but it is for sure interesting to visit it. To have a more real experience just walk in the countryside. Trulli are everywhere! It is curious that such a kind of buildings can be found in other part of the world: Harran is a Turkish village in Mesopotamia with similar houses.
