Quando pensiamo alla Puglia rammentiamo il suo sole, il suo splendido mare e le sue caratteristiche costruzioni: i famosissimi "Trulli". 
Alberobello è la "Capitale dei Trulli", premiata dall’Unesco come uno dei suoi "Patrimonio dell’Umanità".
Questa piccola cittadina è quasi totalmente costituita da edifici conici in pietra di colore bianco-grigio che si susseguono uno dopo l’altro, nel terreno ondulato e lungo le vie del paese. 
Minuscole capanne tonde, dal tetto aguzzo, ognuna con un piccolo comignolo, una minuscola finestrella, e una buffa intonacatura in cima al cono.
L’atmosfera è magica, quasi fiabesca, sembrano uscite da una favola di elfi e gnomi. 
I trulli più antichi risalgono al XIV secolo.
Queste meravigliose costruzioni, uniche al mondo, ed esempio straordinario di tipologia edilizia e di un insieme architettonico rurale italiano, sono appoggiate direttamente sulla roccia, senza fondamenta, con blocchi di pietra rozzamente lavorati e posati l’uno sull’altro, senza malta a fissarli tra loro.

La Basilica dei Santi Medici Cosma e Damiano rappresenta il monumento emblematico e il fulcro della storia religiosa di Alberobello, pur distaccandosi dalle caratteristiche urbanistiche della città, interamente edificata a Trulli.
Sin dai primi anni del milleseicento si hanno parziali notizie relative  all’esistenza di una chiesetta.
Con il tempo  essa fu progressivamente ampliata.
Oggi, il tema visivo della facciata è dominato dal Neoclassicismo, una concordanza di classica maestosità e di ricerca spaziale, che, con i suoi 36 metri di altezza, domina la città.
Alle spalle dell'imponente Basilica, sorge il Trullo Sovrano: rappresenta il più avanzato esempio di trullo disposto su due piani.
L'impressionante cupola conica, segno della grande abilità costruttiva della pietra "a secco" raggiunta dai maestri trullari, è alta circa 14 metri, si erge maestosa al centro di un gruppo costituito da dodici coni.
Costruito nella prima metà del settecento, esso adotta soluzioni costruttive uniche che fanno di questo edificio la più avanzata e mirabile interpretazione dell'architettura a trullo.
E' attualmente adoperato come spazio espositivo in occasione di mostre temporanee o per incontri culturali.
E se gli abiti stampa floreale sono super fashion per questa stagione calda, diventano ancora più cool se abbinati ad un paio di jeans svasati, o dall'orlo tagliato a vivo. Nel mio ootd, scelto per visitare la magica cittadina, la lunghezza dei pantaloni alla caviglia slancia l'insieme, mentre gli accessori, una borsa e un cappello in paglia ed un paio di slingback rigorosamente bianche, regalano il giusto tocco trendy.

When looking at the sharp, round reef of a long series of small dimensional houses, you might be certain that you just entered the world of fairytales or hobbits. In fact, it is nothing more than the small town of Alberobello located in Southern Italy and everything is as real as possible.
Fragile as they might seem, most of the dwellings were built over 5 centuries ago and they are still inhabited by locals. The tiny houses, which are actually called Trulli, are stuck to one another and their interior is rounded. The fireplace is built inside of the walls in order to maintain the heat.
What is even more interesting about the architecture is that none of the Trulli has a foundation, nor do they require any mortar. It is a curious matter, considering the fact that, at the time the first houses were built, there had already been discovered much more effective architectural techniques in the area.
Due to its unique architecture, culture, and history, as well as the scenery seen from the hill right next to it, Alberobello is a fairytale-like place that can easily impress any enthusiast who is keen on traveling.
The Basilica of the Santissimi Medici Cosma and Damiano represents the emblematic monument and the fulcrum of the religious history of Alberobello, while detaching itself from the urban characteristics of the city, entirely built in Trulli.
The majestic church is a synthesis of the various remaking and enlargements experienced by the church.  Nowadays it stands on a site which during the 17th century was occupied by a rural chapel named after the Madonna delle Grazie, and later on, dedicated to the Santi Cosma and Damiano, patrons of the town. The building works took inspiration from the stylistic bearings of the Neoclassical.
The portal is well fitted in a very refined architectonic cornice and is also embellished by a noteworthy sculptural set.
In 1938 it was elevated to Sanctuary and in 2000 it was nominated Basilica minore.

Behind the imposing Basilica, stands the Trullo Sovrano.
Built during the first half of the 18th century, it is the only trullo with a raised floor and because of this, it is called "Sovrano". Its measurements are extraordinary, just think that the dome is 14 meters high, a sign of the great dry stone building skills reached by the Trulli masters.
The trullo’s façade is surrounded by a pediment which frames three windows and the main entrance.
The interior is divided in 12 Trulli, arranged around the central space of the main dome.
Because of its architectonic peculiarity, the building was declared a National Monument in 1930.
It’s now a small 'living' museum recreating trullo life. 

If floral dresses are super glamorous in this hot season, they become even cooler when paired with flared jeans. In my ootd, my choice of style to visit the enchanted town, the ankle-length of the denim pants thinner the figure, while the accessories, a straw bag and a pair of white slingback shoes, give the right trendy touch.
