Of course, fashion, climate and available materials have varied styles as time has passed. In Southern Europe the terracotta half-pipe tile, or pantile, is very popular. Cheap to produce from the local clay and easy to fit, they date back several millennia and panoramas of cities such as Florence would not be the same without them.
