Italian to English translations [PRO] Architecture / type of roof??
Italian term or phrase:ceramide (see context)
Il paese affascina subito il visitatore per il suo centro urbano unico, costituito da case in stile medievale: “palazziate e solarate" di fantasiose soluzioni architettoniche, catoi, sottopassaggi, scalette e tetti di ceramide (tegole ricurve) danno la visione di un paesaggio naturale quasi incontaminato.
thanks in advance

'Each "caseda" was built in stone held together by clay (locally available building material) and rooved with tiles (known as "ceramide") which rested on beams known as "cervuni".'
