Some things about Puglia.
Puglia is one of the richest archaeological regions in Italy. It was first colonized by Mycenaean Greeks. A number of castles were built in the area by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II including Castle del Monte, sometimes called the “Crown of Apulia”. There are an estimated 50 to 60 million olive trees in Pugia, and the region accounts for 40% of Italy’s olive oil production. Cuisine plays an important role throughout Apulia. The key locally produced ingredients used there include olive oil, artichokes, tomatoes, aubergine, asparagus and mushrooms In summer it is very common to use also the carosello, a variety of muskmelon which is often consumed in an immature state. As with the other regions of Italy, the national language (since 1861) is Italian. However, because of its long and varied history, other historical languages have been used in this region for centuries. In isolated pockets of the southern part of Salento, a dialect of Greek called Griko is still spoken by a few thousand people.
