Puglia: Better Than The Caribbean!
Presented by Anita Sanseverino and Lou Barrella

Puglia, until recently, was one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Puglia has everything: castles, fortresses, lighthouses, an abundance of seascapes in rainbow colors, beaches and rock formations that resemble moonscapes, caves formed over millions of years, landscapes and gardens and flowering trees, blinding white limestone buildings, and above all, olive trees with roots that go back a thousand years!

Join Anita Sanseverino and Lou Barella in learning about this fascinating region, through Anita’s personal experiences in traveling throughout the Salento coast. See the unique beauty as photographed by Anita and made vividly alive by Lou’s genius for putting photos and music together to create a magical video which creates a lively experience, both knowledgeable and entertaining.
