Puglia

Puglia is a southern region that forms the "heel" of the Italian boot. It is famous for the hill villages with the characteristic white plaster, for the countryside with an ancient flavor and for the hundreds of kilometers of Mediterranean coast. The capital, Bari, is a lively port and university city, while Lecce is known as the "Florence of the South" due to its baroque architecture. Alberobello and the Itria Valley are instead the home of the trulli, the traditional stone buildings with the characteristic conical roof.

Puglia is a region of southern Italy that borders Molise to the north-west, Campania and Basilicata to the west and is bathed by the Adriatic Sea to the east and north and by the Ionian Sea to the south. The capital is Bari and the other provinces are Brindisi, Foggia, Lecce, Taranto and Barletta-Andria-Trani, the latter established in 2008. Really happy is the combination of the attractions that this land contains, from the 860 kilometers of coast with cliffs to peak and Caribbean beaches, quality food and wine: the bread of Altamura Dop, the capocollo of Martina Franca, the bowls of Cisternino, the extra virgin olive oils and the Primitivo, Negroamaro and Nero di Troia wines are just some of the regional excellences . Rupestrian churches, Romanesque cathedrals, the castles of Frederick II and the treasures of the Baroque enrich their artistic profile.

Puglia are the trulli, ravines, chaffs and sinkholes, the national parks of the Gargano and Murge, the marine reserves of the Tremiti Islands and Torre Guaceto. Puglia are the basilicas, cathedrals and sanctuaries, different artistic expressions united by faith, are the famous terracotta whistles of Rutigliano, the lace of the Gargano, the ceramic products of Grottaglie and the artifacts made in Salento with the tender Lecce stone, with iron beaten and with papier mache. Puglia are the rhythms and colors of the Taranta and of the Salento pizzica that receive due homage in the famous Notte della Taranta, which has now become the largest festival in Italy dedicated to this traditional dance with ancestral anthropological nuances and one of the most significant events on culture popular in Europe.

Furthermore, Puglia is the most industrialized region of southern Italy. Most of the industrial sites are located in the Bari - Brindisi - Taranto triangle, where there are industries for the production of steel and for refining oil, as well as the textile and plastic industry. There are also wineries, canneries, tobacco and oil factories. In the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani there is a strong concentration of textile and footwear industries, as well as in that of Lecce. The food industry is particularly developed in the province of Foggia. The region is very poor in minerals, only modest quantities of bauxite and methane gas are extracted.
