Masserie - evolution
Time and progress have dramatically changed the houses themselves: sheepfolds became mills, stables have been replaced by garages, plows disappeared in favor of huge and powerful tractors. Men's life too has changed, so much so they often abandoned these treasures of their native lands. Only a few masserie nowadays continue to explicate their initial functions, the majority consists of simple houses or maybe happens to be resorts, restaurants and discos; still some other ones crashed under the weight of the uncaring years. In Apulia estimated by the Touring Club, there are six hundred and sixty five masserie. Among them all the tourist could visit many, appreciating them in their fullness, at the same time considering their specific distinctive peculiarities.
