San Marzano di San Giuseppe

San Marzano di San Giuseppe (in the Arbëresher dialect Shën Marcani, in the regional dialect around Brindisi Sa'Mmarzanu) is a southeast Italian community (comune) with 9282 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2015) in the province of Taranto in Puglia. The municipality is located about 23 kilometers east of Taranto and about 56 kilometers west of Lecce in southern Salento.

In the 15th century, a large number of Albanian families moved to this area, so that there are still numerous speakers of Arbëresh.
