Enjoy exploring some of the fascinating traditional villages of southern Italy --- hilltop communities and limewashed labyrinths. Not for style imitation, the architectural lessons are of time and humanity! On our approach, the expression within the landscape intrigues us. These villages show emphatic response to Place, and the built gathering enhances the lives of the people.
This book, one of a series, presents personal photography of some vernacular architecture of the north Mediterranean, selecting from southern Italy, especially Puglia. Notes expand the visual glimpses. Whitewash glows with pervasive incandescence.
