Experience Restoration - Southern Italy Style
Sign up today to claim your place in Trullo restoration!
This 10-day course in Puglia will offer students experience in stone restoration and exposure to the vernacular architecture of the Valle d'ltria area. Similar to last year, this workshop will consist of reconstruction of a broken trullo, and a ground walling project. The trullo pictured above is located between Cerglie Messapica and Martina Franca.
We will work with local stone masons, called Trullari, and the legendary Norman Haddow of Scotland, to put a new roof on an old home.
Tuition is $2000, which includes ground transportation, tours in Puglia, meals, board and instruction. Students are responsible for their own health insurance, and for transportation to Puglia, Italy. In order that students may gather a broadened understanding of Southern Italy, field trips and excursions into the nearby towns and UNESCO sites have been organized.
