Puglia (Puglia in Italian) is a region in the south-eastern part of Italy. More precisely on the heel of the boot. Very sunny and arid. It is in this region that we find the famous trulli dwellings. The capital is Bari.
It is one of the biggest producers of olive oil. It also produces high quality durum wheat that is found in the workshops of the best artisanal pasta makers in the country. One of the typical formats of this region are the orecchiette (small ears). One of Italy's most famous pasta makers (Benedetto Cavalieri) can be found in the south of this region.
