For the ones who are not still familiar with “trulli”, we’ll give you a short overview: “Trulli” are typical and historical dwellings, built in dry-stone and covered by coned roofs. They are easy to spot in all Itria Valley, but they are mostly concentrated in Alberobello, where they create a tiny village of more than 1,500 “trulli”! The word “trullo” comes from the Greek word “trullos” which means dome, but in the past the farmers called them “casedda”, in Apulian “small house”. 
These little constructions date back to the 17th century, and they were the typical houses of the farmers who needed to move frequently to find fertile lands but also because they were very clever.
