Italy 1971-1973


Our son Bruce on the balcony of our apartment No. 100 Via A Grande in Commenda, a suburb of Brindisi. We were on the first floor of a seven story building.

Top - our apartment building; bottom, Bruce on Via Apia (the Appian Way) Brindisi near the harbor. The Apia Way is the ancient Roman road that ran from Rome to Brindisi.

Bruce at the ancient Roman columns that have welcomed incoming ships and people for more than 2000 years.

Alberobello, Italy and trulli houses. Alberobello is about 60 miles north of Brindisi and is world famous for these unique houses built 100 years before Columbus sailed to America. The houses were built using no mortar. The town is also famous for woven wool bed covers.
