Apulia. The Masserie
With their impressive silhouettes and grand architecture, often isolated on a hill's top or along its side, or standing in the middle of an endless plain, the masserie tell the many tales of Apulian history. They can be found everywhere, paradigms of a society devoted to agriculture since the dawn of time, lone symbols of hard lives lived in symbiosis with seasonal cycles.The rearranged, enlarged and transformed architecture of present-day masserie mostly dates back to the period between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries.
