On Via Generale Diaz, you will find the Biblioteca Parrocchiale “Domenico Morea,” named after the priest and scholar who was born in Alberobello, and who went on to turn the nearby city of Conversano into the “Athens of Italy.”
A plaque on a facade marks the house where Don Peppino Contento lived, while in Alberobello.
Another plaque adorns the facade of the building in which the noted historian, Giuseppe Notarnicola, was born.
We came upon the building in which Monsignor Cosmo Francesco Ruppi was born.
A nearby plaque celebrates the city being listed as a World Heritage Site!
Next up: We spend our last day in Alberobello visiting the Basilica Santuario dei Santi Cosma e Damiano, and then, later in the evening, attend a fall wine and food festival!
