Dedicated to my friend elenimavrandoni

About workmanship .... Three storey, cylindrical stone construction buildings, whitewashed and with conical roof covered by rushes. The roof can be rotated in order to obtain, depending on the direction of the wind breath,the required relative orientation for rotating the wheel from the wind. Triangular sails mounted on wooden antennae of wind-wheel made ​​it rotate in breath of wind then transferring the motion to interior wooden shaft which in turn forced into turning the millstones. These along with the rest of the grinding mechanism is upstairs so the flour fell concentrated on the middle floor. The ground floor, which was usually elevated, functioned as a place of weighing and storage of grain.
