The Visalia-Putignano Sister City Committee was established in 1980 as a cultural and educational exchange between citizens of Visalia and Putignano, Italy.
The Trulli (which rhymes with Julie) which was built with donations, was dedicated on April 27, 1986. The Trulli is a replica of a type of building which is abundant in the area near Putignano, Italy.
Each year the Sister City committee has an Italian Festival to celebrate the connection between the two cities with an Italian Festival. This year the festival will be held this Sunday, October 27, 2013, at the Trulli House located in Memorial Park at the corner of Main and Hall Streets from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Festival is open to the public. There will be refreshments, live music, and tours of the building available.
