The Trulli in the Apulian town of Alberobello are famous worldwide for their beauty and unique characteristics, and represent one of the most extraordinary examples of Italian folk architecture. They were built in a particular historical period, when the construction of stable dwellings was highly-taxed; the inhabitants of the region thus boasted a great capacity to adapt, and an exceptional cleverness in coming up with the idea for the Trulli, temporary houses built with the local stone. Trulli di AlberobelloFrom precariousness to stability - the process of transformation and recovery, and the deference to the originality of the work earned the Trulli of Alberobello (in Apulia) their recognition as a World Heritage Site. In the southeastern zone of the Murge Plateau, more precisely in the area of Valle d'Itria, these buildings are scattered throughout the territory, where they stand out with their white walls and famous cone-shaped roofs.

Alberobello is universally-known as the capital of the Trulli. Here, each Trullo is of a different shape and size. Unique constructions, they are sometimes combined in a complex of communicating houses, while others are built on two levels. Most of them feature a grey cone-shaped roof that ends with a sphere or hemisphere shape. The interior, arranged as a single chamber, is constituted niches for a fireplace, bed and various furniture.
