De Mari Palace, Acquaviva delle Fonti

The De Mari Palace in Acquaviva delle Fonti is a historic building that is striking for its mixture of architectural styles, including Baroque and 12th-century Norman elements. Originally a Norman castle, one can still recognize the irregular floor plan and corner towers. The building was expanded in the 13th century and further modified during the Angevin period, including the strengthening of the defenses. Under the Acquaviva of Aragon, the castle became a residential palace, with the De Mari family of Genoa transforming it into an elegant place with a theater, an art gallery and decorations of the period, such as frames and apotropaic masks. Today the palace, also known as the Prince's Palace, is owned by the municipality and houses the town hall, the Ecomuseum, the Archaeological Museum of the Territory, and an exhibition hall.
