This 15-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 an example of what sort of roof we will be working on, located between Ceglie Messapica and Martina Franca. 

We will work with local stone masons, called Trullari, to put a new roof on an old home.
