Giuseppe Micollis a trulli maker

The art of building trulli.

Giuseppe is a really funny guy. At first, he looked serious and even a bit too proper but then he showed his playful soul. No doubt that he loves his stone and he’s proud of being the last trulli maker. He wants this handcraft to be known and passed on. That’s why he does courses and hosts local schools in his open-air workspace, to show the young generations how a trullo is made, hoping that some of these kids will fall in love with this ancient tradition and follow in his footsteps. Giuseppe is mad about the rudist a sort of fossil in the stone in which he tries to find shapes and forms that resemble animals or humans. These stone figures were once used to keep the devil and bad luck away.
