The history of the Albanian Murgia Masseria
Albanian Murgia is a historic farmhouse built in the 1600. Towards the end of the 1700 assumed the current appearance following an ambitious restructuring desired by the Albanese family, family of noble origins owner of numerous estates.
The family, through patriotic and official Giuseppe Leonardo Albanese, linked their history to the Neapolitan Republic of 1799. Called to be part of the Provisional Government of the Republic, made up of twenty-five members, it initially played an important role in the Albanian Law Committee and became one of the five members of the Executive Commission, in which it played a prominent role; for a short time he held the posts of Minister of War, Navy, and Foreign Affairs. The Neapolitan Republic, however, not having received popular consent outside the capital, had a short life: just six months. With the victory of the Sanfedist forces and the end of the Republic, Albanese was condemned to hang. The family, after the confiscations suffered as retaliation and a subsequent fall of power, gradually left the territory.
