In the past, the “Iazzo” was the shelter for goats and sheep, made of different closed areas, named “corti”, used as separation among the different spaces. This is the old name they used a long time ago in the Itria Valley and in the Salento as well.
Nowadays, the courtyard in the Iazzo Scagno wraps and walls serenity and creates peace in your soul. They tell a story, the story of an ancient place, full of mystery and suggestion, a fascinating story told by the voices of trees and stones.
They narrate legends about men and women, who used to live so many years ago, stories of work and sacrifices, of burning sun and freezing winters, of sunsets and sunrises, of love-stories under the big oak’s shadow. Maybe, you’ll discover similarities with those men and women. With the same hopes and illusions, with the same emotions and passions.
