Early Form of Trullo
This dry stone hut shows how the early Trulli were constructed in the South East corner of Italy.This type of building was later transformed into substantial houses in Pulgia . Many of the farms had a series of these dry stone buildings cleverly joined together to accommodate whole familes and their animals in winter. Mortared versions came later and in modern times many newcomers are buying them and converting them into very comfortable homes.
