Fig. F20) Glass bottle in the shape of a lightbulb.
Italy, 1970. This small liquor bottle is an imitation of a lightbulb and was produced
for collectors of miniature bottles.
Fig. F21)Dwellings with a conical roof, called trulli.
They are in the Apulia region, in the Murge
geographical area. Trulli have ancient origins.
In the countr yside many of these homes were abandoned
and fell into decay. But in the city of Alberobello they
have been restored and now are a tourist attraction.
The image shows a ceramic souvenir,
2 and 1/2 inches high. It is a petite
knickknack, appreciated for its beauty
and for the interesting conical roofs.
