PAINTING IN ALBEROBELLO
Artists who relish painting the diverse Italian architecture and want to step into the pages of a children’s fairytale, should venture to Alberobello in the Deep South near Bari on the Adriatic side, (heel) of the country. The villagers are especially gracious to artists who sit with sketchpads or set up easels in the maze of cobblestone streets that curve through Italy’s most magical village. There are more than 1,000 beehive-shaped trulli, some dating back to the 13th century. These unique limestone structures with conical roofs promise to not disappoint any artist eager to capture a sliver of fantasy on his or her canvas.
