Why were the Trulli built?
The trullo was born as a humble and emergency dwelling for the peasants, who did not own a house, built one with the redundant stones after tilling the land. The peasants, skilled artisans, were able in a short time to build a roof for their family, using a particular construction technique that, only by looking closely, you will be able to understand. The pinnacles are placed on the cones of the trulli, made by hand and using lime, and represent specific symbols (ornamental, magical, pagan, Christian, primitive), each with a particular function: to protect the family, fight the evil eye or pray some deity in order to get a good harvest.
