The square in front of ‘Castello Caracciolo’ was characterized by the presence of a public market built in the fifties on a lot resulting from the demolition of some houses. The building was in a state of general deterioration, also because it has been closed for several years. With the requalification of the square, a part of the building exceeding the outline of the old house was demolished: this demolition allowed the recovery of the space of the original square and the construction of a civic hall in the requalified building to which a deep porch was added.
The new flooring, the internal divisions and the creasing perimeter of the square is made up of “Stone of Trani” : in the squaring were used the flagstones previously removed. Three stone benches used as bollards and two high street lamps are the only pieces of fixed furniture.
The main front of the new porch, plastered and whitewashed with lime, emphasizes the projection of the façade onto the civic hall, and recreates the original perimeter of the public space.
