The Courtyard

This Amazing guesthouse completely dug in the rock, looks at the “vicinato”, the only common area where families used to spend their day.

“The vicinato was “the entrance” to the dwellings, each of them with its own door. In the summer, the vicinato was a big shared house, where people in the early morning used to clean almonds and cobs. They spread sheaves of wheat under the sun and then put them on canvas […] they criticized pedestrians and made appreciations. (Antonio D’Ercole – Voci di Sassi, 2002)
