The Palazzo Atti

The Palazzo Atti

Palazzo Atti, at number 24 Corso Cavour, with its richly decorated façade, is one of the most beautiful examples of Liberty architecture in Bari. Stile Liberty was an international art style, which spread throughout Europe at the end of the 19th century. In its latest version, it reached these southern Italy areas. In Bari, Stile Liberty is characterized by an evident Baroque style, in which decorative abundance connotes in particular the façades and interior of the prestigious middle-class buildings in the Murat district, where floral shapes, cornucopias, and decorative patterns proliferate, taken from international sculpture and applied art. In addition to Palazzo Atti, with its elegantly carved balconies, the enchanted travelers may admire Palazzo Kursaal Santa Lucia, the Teatro Margherita, and not far away, in via Sparano, Palazzo Mincuzzi.
