Traditional Apennines Huts


Typical rural construction: leaning against the hillock with a triangular shaped roof covered in rye. Typically used seasonally: at the bottom animals, at the top tools, crops and on occasion even humans. The expertise in saving space and material lies in superimposing a parallelepiped shape (of which one wall is spared because it exploits the slope) to a triangular one that guarantees stability. Furthermore, there is no internal communication between the two floors. The lower floor is accessed from the lower part of the slope, while the upper one from the upper part of the slope.
