You’re invited to the 2017 Trullo Restoration Workshop in Ceglie Messapica, Puglia, Italy! Our workshop project will be to restore a trullo roof under the guidance and instruction of USA- based stone mason and sculptor Thea Alvin and local master trullo builder Mario Santoro. In addition to the workshop project we will explore the area through a series of excursions observing and discussing how stone has been used over the centuries to create human habitation.
