Rural Architecture Workshop
For your holidays in Salento…Tenuta Masseria Chicco Rizzo to discover the ancient pleasure of being in contact with nature
The aim of this workshop is to teach participants about the architectural structures and ancillary works of civil engineering functional to the estate’s agricultural operations, that can be admired in the masseria and in the surrounding territory.
During your guided tour, you will discover the buildings and their typical characteristics (vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and the bread oven), but also the outdoor spaces organised and enclosed within drystone walls.
Watching a documentary about the use made of local Lecce stone, you can focus on an analysis of how the typical starred-vaults of the Salento in tufa stone were constructed. Thus you will embark on a journey back into the history of the Salento.
