Trulli houses history: the construction technique
Today, trulli are still used as dwellings and are the subject of continuous studies by international engineers and architects (some of which have even tried to reproduce them elsewhere).
A brilliant example of spontaneous architecture, the trullo is built on a solid base (very thick walls) on which the heavy masonry is inserted into limestone.
Very old building techniques give life to a structure that, although lacking supporting elements, possesses an extraordinary static capacity. The trullo is usually circular and the interior spaces are distributed around the central compartment. The thickness of the walls and the few windows ensure an optimal thermal balance, warmth in winter and cool in summer.
