These are Italian Trulli, dry stone homes usually made with limestone without any mortar. Dry stone building is part of the heritage of this region of Italy where many of the fields are divided by dry stone walls. The roofs of the trulii are built with two skins: an inner skin of limestone voussoirs (wedge-shaped stones forming the curved parts of an arch) capped by a closing stone, and an outer skin of limestone slabs that are slightly tilted downward to shed rain.
