    Authenticity of the Past and Beauty of the Present


    From the sixth century. to 1700

The Cultural Project

Adriana De Santis and Mimmo Rajola Pescarini, descendant of Luca de Samuele Cagnazzi, ventured into the enhancement of the Cagnazzi Historic House in ALtamura in Apulia, and appurtenances driven by the desire to know this heritage of buildings, furnishings and books. Since the beginning the couple has adopted the principle of absolute respect for this place, for its furnishings – restored laboriously and with great love – its books and archival documentation that contribute to the historical reconstruction of Altamura and of the figure of Cagnazzi. That’s why Adriana and Mimmo preferred to use the property privately, while promoting important cultural eventsand converting the property for short periods into a Bed and Breakfast / Holiday Home.

“At the beginning of the adventure of the recovery of this structure in 2015, the dry stone walls that encircled it were for the most part uneven. The caves were blocked by material of all kinds and by waste, spilled by unknown persons over the years. The first heavy task was to rebuild the dry stone walls, a valuable feature of the area and to free the caves. Already in these first operations, while the excavator was taking out the waste, wonder and curiosity grew out of all proportion. The testimonies of the past began to reappear. The interior of the structure, without electrical and water systems, did not disappoint expectations. After 150 years of neglect that slowly left the house, antique furniture, furnishings, kitchen, clothing and many other things reappeared.”

Caves and Hypogea

Sembrerebbe che le grotte, nate probabilmente in funzione dell’antico macello, siano anteriori alle cave e che queste ultime siano state avviate dall’interno delle stesse grotte.

In the historic house there is an orchard, an olive grove, a vineyard, crops of cereals and vegetables. It also houses hives for beekeeping with didactic space.
