BURANO _ 0517

IMG_4099

Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy; like Venice itself, it could more correctly be called an archipelago of four islands linked by bridges. It is situated near Torcello at the northern end of the Lagoon, and is known for its lacework and brightly coloured homes.
The island was probably settled by the Romans, and in the 6th century was occupied by people from Altino, who named it for one of the gates of their former city. Two stories are attributed to how the city obtained its name. One is that it was initially founded by the Buriana family, and another is that the first settlers of Burano came from the small island of Buranello, about 8 kilometres (5 miles) to the south.

TRADITIONAL KANAK HOUSE _ 0409

Traditionally round, the hut is built of plant materials: wood and straw or, as on Ouvéa, wood and coconut palm fronds. This Kanak house is the place where a family and others from the same clan sleep. Children usually rest at the back of this dwelling.

Inside, a hearth is placed near the hut entrance. It provides heat on some nights, even though the advantage of the hut is that it keeps heat in during the cool season and minimises it in summer. The traditional construction has another advantage: it gives the wind almost no hold during cyclones.

The structures typical for the village are created by digging a large pit in the ground. Around the perimeter of this pit artificial caves are then dug to be used as rooms, with some homes comprising multiple pits, connected by trench-like passageways.
