Ancient peoples of Puglia. Archeology Speaks


The Svevo castle of Bari, the beating heart of the city, enlivens with an exhibition dedicated to the Ancient Peoples of Puglia.

The exhibition, conceived by the Directorate General for Museums and produced by the Ministry of Culture and the Puglia Regional Directorate of Museums, takes us on a journey into the deep roots of the Apulian people through ancient artifacts, vases, archaeological finds, visual dances and original works of art. Over six hundred finds testify to the rich and varied archaeological heritage of Puglia.

This great exhibition, which will be held at the Castello Svevo in Bari until March 31st 2023 was created, to quote the words of the Regional Director of Puglia Museums Dr. Luca Mercuri, "as an opportunity to valorize the collections of places of local culture".

"The installation becomes in essence an opportunity to highlight, also with the presence of works not usually exhibited, the plurality of cultures that have alternated in the area, through a narrative that values their particular characteristics", comments the Director General of Museums, Prof. Massimo Osanna

An opportunity not to be missed, to understand and appreciate the uniqueness of the variegated Italian culture.
