Photographer's Note

Alberobello, Unesco world heritage because of the more than 1.000 trulli in this community.The trulli , limestone dwellings are remarkable examples of drywall (mortarless) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders collected from neighbouring fields. Characteristically, they feature pyramidal, domed or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs.
