Puglia is the heel stretching down from the spur of the Italian boot. It boasts beautiful, if flat landscapes, cities with Romanesque cathedrals, Gothic castles and a tremendous wealth of Baroque architecture. And yet, though far from inaccessible, it has only in recent years become popular with British tourists. Today, however, Puglia is becoming fashionable as “the new Tuscany”. There are radio and television features on it, travel supplements which describe its beaches and cooking, and supermarkets stock Apulian wine, olive oil, bread and pasta. Yet almost nothing about the region has been published in English since the days of Norman Douglas and the Sitwells. One can find ‘holiday histories’ of Tuscany, but there is no popular introduction to Apulian history, not even in Italian. This book has been written to fill the gap by providing a simple, readable study of the region, its historical influences, cultural sites and emerging popularity.
