Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Solar use in south Europe goes back more than 2000 years.  Entire cities were built on passive solar principles.  And many houses in north Africa were built using solar coolers.  In fact, Roman law included rights of access to the sun.
