Italian term or phrase: di testa e di costa
"A dispetto degli elementi verticali in pietra (murature e pilastri), le volte sono costituite da mattoni pieni (circa 30146cm) disposti alternativamente di testa e di costa. L’analisi della tessitura muraria ha permesso di individuare come la posa in opera sia stata eseguita per filari paralleli alle direttrici e perpendicolari agli archi generatori, con intersezioni ‘a spina di pesce’ in corrispondenza dei costoloni."
