Welcome to Puglia, the beautiful region in Southern Italy that I call home.
I am Rosanna Coscia, a hospitality industry executive and a child of Puglia, proud of my roots, forever enchanted by the people, culture, cuisine and history that I know and love. Since leaving my hometown of Grumo Appula in Bari when I was a teenager, it's been my dream to introduce Puglia to a wider audience. That dream is finally being realized with the Puglia Center in Manhattan and this new website. By raising the profile of this wonderful region, I know Puglia will become a treasured destination that is a secret no more.
Please check our site for highlights of the region, practical travel information and savvy advice on where to eat, stay, visit and shop. We'll include news updates, monthly events, cultural listings, business information and happenings in Italy and New York designed to showcase all that is Puglia. Enjoy!
Rosanna Coscia, President
