MASSERIA in Puglia-Connoisseur’s Guide

Written by Aksel Ritenis

Historical context of Masseria in Puglia

The “Masseria” is a typical rural building in Puglia, in the Salento inland, whose origins can be traced back to the 17th century. 
It is a courtyard-farm built according to the customs of that time, considering the farmer’s needs and the activities he had to realize in this place.

The Masseria in Puglia was a real agricultural centre, dedicated to farming and production, in which the farmer lived with his family, each of them having specific duties and roles. (Occasionally there were also sowers, gleaners, shepherds and other workers who helped in the periods of more intense activity.)
