Located in the heart of Bari, «Il Palazzo dell'Acqua» has become the heritage of Puglia over time. The palace is the tangible expression of the ancient in a great project realized: bringing water, also thanks to the collaboration of the populations of Irpinia and Lucania, and making a chronically thirsty land productive, improving the living conditions of its inhabitants. The style chosen for the building is perfectly integrated with the local tradition, which in the building finds expression not only in materials, but also in the many decorative stylistic references, inspired by the most famous architectural monuments of the region. The Trani stone for the external cladding shows, in the sculpted details on the capitals, in the mullioned windows inscriptions and on the balconies, all the wise skill of the local stonemasons. The story of this undertaking written in stone is told with symbolic effectiveness by the decorator Duilio Cambellotti, through a rich gallery of wall paintings, sculptures, furniture and other decorative forms.
