Description

The southern portion of the region is a flat and fertile peninsula that forms the characteristic heel of the Italian "boot". In ancient times only the northern part of the region was called Apulia while the southern peninsula was known as Calabria, a name later used to designate the toe of the Italian "boot". The region was settled by several Italian tribes and by Greek colonists before it was conquered by Rome in the 4th century B.C. As usual, the Romans organised the land in agricultural parcels, built roads and established new settlements. After the fall of the Roman Empire, as much of the rest of southern Italy, Apulia was held at alternate times by the Goths, the Lombards and the Byzantines. In the 11th century the Normans conquered it and Robert Guiscard set up the duchy of Apulia in 1059. After the Norman conquest of Sicily in the late 11th century, Palermo replaced Melfi as the center of Norman power. Apulia became then a mere province, first of the kingdom of Sicily, then of the kingdom of Naples and the Two Sicilies. The Turks and the Venetians later occupied the coastline alternatively until 1861, when the region joined the unified Kingdom of Italy. Social and agrarian reforms proceeded slowly in the 19th century and accelerated considerably in the mid-to-late 20th century Apulia is mostly a plain but the mountainous Gargano Peninsula breaks through its low coast to the north. There are mountains in the north central part of the region. Industry has expanded rapidly in the 20th century but farming still represents the main occupation in the region. Regional products include olives, grapes, cereals, almonds, figs, tobacco and livestock, including sheep, pigs, cattle and goats. Manufacturing includes refined petroleum, chemicals, cement, iron, steel, processed food, plastics and wine. The fishing industry is active in the Adriatic and in the Gulf of Taranto.
