Alberobello

The city is mainly known to their Trulli that are modeled like shepherd huts. It is not clearly documented, since when there these trulli are in the region of Puglia. For the frequent dissemination of this houses there is a specific reason. Girolamo II, Duke of Acquaviva, wants avoid an imperial decree. It was forbidden to establish new villages without permission. This permits cost money. And these Trullis are no houses, they could be dismantled as quickly as build again.
