The story of Aia Grande

The story of Aia Grande
Aia is a round place
The Hague is a circular surface usually ranging in size from 70 to 100 square paved with flagstones and fenced with stone blocks about 30 cm tall.
On this surface, many years ago, happened threshing barley and wheat. "Thresh" was said in the local dialect: "pisare" with reference to the "Pisara" which was a trapezoidal stone, tied to the breastplate of a quadruped and dragged on the ears in order to free the wheat from the chaff.
 
While the barley was working at night, when straw was soft, the grain was worked during the day in the hot sun until 4 pm when workers stopped to work. The workers, during their work, wore a straw hat and a cotton handkerchief wrapped around the neck to prevent the straws to slip into the shirt.
The Hague today is no longer used, replaced by modern combine harvester that does all the work on the fields and it’s faster, but less authentic and original.
