Course in Italy Repairing a Trullo

Contact Thea Alvin at for more information.

 This is the Trullo that we are going to restore. If you are interested in going with us to Italy in September to work on stone roof systems, please let her know. The instructors and helpers are all volunteers. Just think of it as a working vacation. The very best way to really know a country is to work in it.


Since childhood this bridge has amazed me mainly because I have seen a tractor and trailor going over what looks like a very fragile arch of stones.  It was only when I started drystone walling in my mid 40s that I realised that it was possible for me to do something very similar and now I have built several bridges with a grassy track over them.  Thus achieving a lifetime ambition.
