ENGLISHAlberobello housed a concentrationary complex for civil prisoners (a former school for agricultural studies, called Casa Rossa) opened by the fascist regime immediately after Italy’s participation to the War (June 10th, 1940); it was in use from 1940 to 1950. Until 1943, British civilians, Italians who were believed to be politically dangerous, deportees from occupied Yugoslavia, Jews from Germany and Poland were deported to this camp. After the armistice between Italy and the Allies (September 8th, 1943), exponents of the declined fascist regime, Italians who were accused of war crimes and soldiers of the Decima MAS were deported to the camp, too. From 1947, Alberobello was used as a camp for the internment of former collaborationists, deserters, etc.
