The ancient walls of a 17th century castle in Puglia are now primed to cradle a series of curated cutting-edge exhibitions and art installations. Castello di Ugento is set to become a vibrant cultural hub for the Salento region. After a groundbreaking restoration and renovation project this magnificent fortress will not just celebrate its glorious past once more with tours of its mythological series of frescoes, but will look to the future, nurturing the region’s artistic talent.
The grand Baroque first floor apartments, with their soaring Salentine star-shaped vaults, will house a spectacular contemporary exhibition space. The work of innovative local and international artists and photographers will be showcased against a glorious backdrop of golden stone.
