Even though millions of people come to visit Alberobello every year, many still do not know the existence of this little pearl in Southern Italy.
Recognized in 1996 by UNESCO World Heritage, Alberobello is universally known for his Trulli: architectural constructions unique in the world and extraordinary example of how apparently simple structures can be revealed as the most ingenious. This little town is embedded in the heart of the incomparable beauty of Itria Valley and it has experienced an extraordinary transformation: from a farmer village to a World tourist attraction.
Its peculiar characteristics, together with the fact that the dwellings are still inhabited, make the site unique, an exceptional vestige of ancient building techniques in a country recognized as one of the most important regions of the world.
“Culture” of a place means both material and intangible aspects, transmitted from generation to generation through language, music, theatre, behaviours, gestures, practices, customs and many other social forms and cultural rights. That’s why Alberobello has been included in the prestigious World Heritage List for the intangible aspects of its culture. Alberobello is therefore an exceptional testimony of how it survived the past, with its architectural and cultural traditions, in the modern world.
