The technique used is a traditional technique of the region called “massone”, or cob in English. The material used is local material found on site. In the workshop on site the various techniques of raw earth building are taught, under the shade of the courtyard, while enjoying the products of the olive grove and the vegetable patch.


The rooms of the house (which we call “The Big Mother” tell stories through their furniture. That furniture was used by our mothers and grandmothers and the rooms are dedicated to these women.
