Museo del territorio ''Casa Pezzolla''
Where Piazza XXVII Maggio, Alberobello (Bari)
The Museum of the region “Casa Pezzolla’’’ is named after Dr. James Pezzolla, who lived in the second half of the 700’s was the personal physician of the Acquaviva d’Aragona. The complex represents the tangible example of a culture’s architectural evolution. In this group of properties, there are two types of buildings: one, more recently, spread over two floors with a tall, narrow facade topped by a triangular pediment; the other which represents the older part, is formed by simple organisms of small dimensions, for the most part single-celled, and equipped with characteristic elements of typical trullo construction. Contrary of the most modern part, in fact, in these areas the walls are formed by non square stones positioned randomly. In 1986, the complex was purchased by the town of Alberobello and between 1993 and 1997, was restored to its original state. The Museum of the region “Casa Pezzolla” is the only complex formed by 15 interconnected trullo’s protected by UNESCO.
