TRADITIONAL APULIAN COSTUMES
Land of ancient traditions, Apulia, despite the fast
passing of time, and the changing uses, still saves
beautiful costumes in almost every corner of its
territory. They are costumes that can be admired
especially during the festivals in honor of the
patron saint, parties that always attract crowds in
religious pilgrimages from the nearby towns and,
sometimes, from all over Apulia.
In Salento men’s clothing consisted of short and
tight trousers, the
legs were covered with
colourful woollen stockings, and the waistcoat and
the short jacket were trimmed with a black ribbon.
They were usually clean shaven (They didn’t
usually wear a beard) On their heads they wore the
Phrygian cap in the shape of a cone with the tip
bent on the right ear. Otherwise they wore a
woollen flat cap. They wore large shoesThe suit
was always deep blue or white, yellow, pink or
black. while the fabric could be wool or cotton. The
seamen put on their shirts cotton waistcoats and in
winter they wore hooded coats.
Costumes from Alberobello
Women had a long vest taken in at the waist with a
belt where a small fabric bag hung, so the long
skirt, with a series of large pleats, went to join the
tight-fitting top. They sometimes wore a corset or
a top, a scarf which covered the breast and a fine
cloth blouse. They wore white or red woollen or
cotton socks. Shoes were made of tanned calfskin
with iron buckling. Their hair was divided by a
straight parting and gathered up behind the neck.
Women of all ages covered their head and
shoulders with headscarves and scarves. The
headscarf was dark for the older women and
colourful for the younger ones.
