Ostuni, detta la città bianca, ha il vanto di essere una delle città più belle della Puglia grazie alle sue casette dipinte interamente di bianco. Oltre alla spettacolarità delle sue abitazioni, Ostuni è una delle mete pugliesi a poca distanza dal mare.Qual è ancora la motivazione del bianco di Ostuni? Una ragione continua ad esistere nonostante il passare dei secoli. All'incirca dal 1800, il comune di Ostuni ha emanato un'ordinanza che obbliga tutti gli abitanti a dipingere le case del centro storico di bianco. Non è un obbligo dettato dalla vanità o per destare lo stupore dei turisti nel vedere questa particolarità, ma è un semplice scopo igienico. Nello stesso anno dell'ordinanza, Ostuni fu colpita da un lungo periodo di siccità che provocò epidemie e carestie. Furono gli stessi abitanti ad avere l'idea di dipingere le loro case con la calce per evitare il contagio di ogni tipo d'infezione e malattia. Questa credenza, tra l'altro fondata, fa si che venga gettata ancora oggi la calce. Grandi pietre chiuse in sacchi vengono riposte nei pozzi della città per purificare le acque pluviali raccolte. Insomma gli antichi abitanti di Ostuni ci avevano visto lungo. La particolarità delle casette bianche del centro storico non è solo incantevole da ammirare, ma favorisce anche la salute della città e di conseguenza della moltitudine di turisti che arrivano da ogni dove.

Beautiful image, I like the contrast of the white of the buildings with a darkened sky that reduces the almost dazzling white of this city. The photo receives an evocative tonal uniformity.
It could compose just under centrally, more sky and less parking in the foreground.
Alysecompliments, also for the interesting caption.
A cherished greeting
Herst

Sergio thanks for the compliments ;-)
"You could compose just under centrally, more sky and less parking in the foreground." ... The photo is deliberately composed in this way because I wanted to emphasize also the Church and the building in the lower right and therefore it was impossible to eliminate the parking lot ;-)
