Maybe one day I’ll visit Otranto, located in Southern Italy, near Lecce, in the Puglia region. Otranto occupies the site of the ancient Hydrus or Hydruntum, a town of Greek origin, which, in the wars of Pyrrhus and of Hannibal sided against Rome. With a history of control by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Neopolitans and then the Turks back to the other guys…800 beheadings…blah, blah, blah…looks pretty sweet doesn’t it?
