In the southern part of Apulia there is a peninsula washed by both the Ionian and the Adriatic seas: this is Salento, a borderland almost just a step away from Greece and Albania. Savoured slowly with no hurry, it can offer a thousand different emotions.

At the centre of the Mediterranean, it offers untamed nature, breathtaking scenery, infinite vistas of olive trees, and masterpieces of the Baroque. Lecce is the main city, but there are also a hundred delightful villages.

A treasury of history, with very ancient relics like the megalithic dolmen and menhir (Palaeolithic monuments) in Terra d'Otranto, the Byzantine treasures in the churches, the frescoes in the underground crypts, the Roman basilicas, the Aragon castles, the coast towers protecting a population always ready to fight off invaders: from the Turks to the Normans, the Spanish to Greeks. And then there are the 200km of coastline, beautiful beaches and coves, bays, cliffs, grottos. Or there are original museums, examples of industrial archaeology like the former Lamarque tannery in Maglie, craftsmen of design, Salento fashion, farms of ancient tradition from where to procure provisions, and restaurants in old mills below ground where the delights of local cuisine can be enjoyed: orecchiette con le cime di rapa pasta with turnip tops, ciceri e tria (pasta with chickpeas), parmigiana (a sort of aubergine lasagne).

Lastly, the music and dance of the Salento region: the “pizzica” style, a unique and lively style popular among the people. This is no longer the music to help cure the "tarantate" (women who had been bitten the poisonous "taranta" spider), but the expression of a Salento full of energy and vitality.

It can be heard everywhere on the air, particularly in the summer. It floats across the beaches, through small villages, in the country and in town. It’s hard to resist.
