Brought the stone to Alberobello, Italy but I did not leave it. Alberobello - famous for Trulli. 600 years ago the lord wanted to tax the people for their buildings. He said it was considered a building if it had mortar. The people of Alberobello figured out a way to make structures (trulli) by cleverly laying and stacking rock. Thus never having to pay these taxes. And the genius patterns of these structures have allowed them to withstand the elements for 600 years.
