Up on the rooftop: making italian tegole

Italian rooftop tiles

In Hawaii the homes that I lived in had either corrugated metal roofing (on the old plantation buildings) or cedar shake (wooden shingles), so to move here and see these lovely tiles was a curious feature. Our home as well as our neighbors have this type of industrially-produced roof tiles. In contrast, watch this video of tegole (singular tegola) made entirely by hand.
