Those who travel in the land of Bari, in search of cultural expressions and emergencies, are well suited to the presentation of a ‘hidden treasure chest’, the Ettore Pomarici Santomasi Foundation, located in the heart of the old city, is the result of the testamentary dispositions of a nobleman who, after his death on 7-12-1917, thanks to the bequest made in favour of the city, was made a non-profit organisation in 1920, with Royal Decree no. 1761 of 28-11-1920.
