Pinnacles and Symbols of trulli...

    The forms of these curious top stones comes from the ancient cults of primitive peoples who worshiped stones meteor coming from the sky and the balls and discs for their natural reference to the solar disk. In less ancient trulli instead, pinnacles have assumed characteristics of the Christian religion as the crosses, or were designed to identify the trullaro( trullo builder) or the owner.

    Frequently, the pediments of the cones are decorated with primitive, magical and religious symbols painted to whitewash. They did not have a particular meaning or reference to aspects of material life of the time, but a form of superstition to invoke good fortune.
