"A trullo (plural, trulli) is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. Trulli were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers. Their golden age was the 19th century.
In its original sense, the Italian term il trullo (from the Greek word τρούλος, cupola) refers to a dry stone corbelled or keystone vault. In a wider sense, it refers to a house whose internal space is covered by a stone vault. Trullo is an italianized form of the dialectal term truddu used in a specific area of the Salentine peninsula (ie. Lizzaio, Maruggio and Avetrana, in other words outside the Murgia dei Trulli proper) where it is the name of the local agricultural dry stone hut. Trullo has replaced the local term casedda (pl. casedde) (italian casella, pl. caselle) which was used by locals in the Murgia to call this type of house.
A stone mason specializing in the building of trulli is a trullisto or trullaro in Italian. The corresponding dialectal term is caseddaro (caseddari in the plural), i.e. builder of casedde
The style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. Trulli may be found in and out of Alberobello, and in the areas around Locorotondo, Fasano, Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica." (from Wikipedia)
