No, they're not for gnomes.
Situated approximately 40 miles south of Bari lies Alberobello, a town full of distinct white-washed homes with conical roofs.
Thousands of Trulli exist in the Valle d’Itria or Itria Valley. However, Alberobello holds over 1,500 of them.
Moreover, the pinnacles vary in shape, presumably to help the trulli builders or trulleros recognize their work, according to the National Geographic.
However, Dr. Annunziata Berrino, professor of contemporary history at the University of Naples said, “They’ve been invented (over time) to satisfy a visitor’s curiosity.” However, what is irrefutable is the residents commitment to preserve their architectural history.
The first territory conquered by Middle Eastern tribes was Puglia. It is believed that they were the ones who utilized the technique of building trulli. They built tombs for their dead and hovels with pinnacles with symbolic signs. However, the dome-shaped construction apparently stemmed from Anatolia.
“Trulli have been protected since 1910,” said Dr. Berrino. The people are forbidden to make alterations to these homes and they suffered because of it. If today we can visit Alberobello and its trulli, it’s thanks to the sacrifice of. the entire population.”
In 1996, Alberobello was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
