Would You "Trulli" Destroy Your Home To Avoid The IRS?

Updated: Oct 29, 2023

The Trulli Houses of Italy are seen just as regular houses, until you get a better look. These houses are made of limestone found nearby, have whitewashed walls, and have pointy roofs. They are circular, cone like, homes that allow it to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but the history of the Trulli homes is remarkable. In the 14th century the Counts Acquaviva of Conversano was gifted land and moved his people there. His people needed houses to live in, but he wanted to be able to build temporary homes. He came up with the idea of a house that could be dismantled in the pull of one brick. The reasoning behind all this was to avoid paying the land tax- no home, no tax. When the tax collector would come, he was unable to tax them. After he left, the people began rebuilding.
