VILLA ANNA & egrave; among the most rich and large residences in Bari. Its history begins in 1893, the year in which it was built by a well-known merchant from Bari.
The dwelling, received in property & agrave; of a well-known entrepreneur from Bari, it was purchased in 1936 by Lucia Battista who gave it her baptismal name of & ldquo; Villa Lucia & rdquo ;. The villa was subsequently sold and purchased, first in 1938 by Mr. Salvemini and two years later by Anna Magarelli, who changed it & ograve; l & rsquo; name in the one still in force of & ldquo; Villa Anna & rdquo ;.
Located in the San Pasquale district
& egrave; hidden from the eyes of passersby by a luxuriant and dense garden and by a wall.
To welcome & egrave; a refined entrance gate, located between two tall columns topped by monumental decorative stone pine cones. Beyond the entrance you & # 39; egrave; catapulted into a real oasis of peace but above all of green.
You find yourself immersed in a luxuriant park of 4500 square meters, wild but at the same time well-kept, made of imposing eucalyptus, pine and palm trees. Walking on the stone paving stones of the floor you get lost among gazebos, refined aviaries and above all dozens of statues depicting animals, apotropaic masks, impertinent children and shy girls. After the great monumental fountain, here is the glorious villa. It appears with its delicate Pompeian pink that combines with the white of the ornaments and the green of the shutters.
Designed in the “eclectic Apulian” style, it combines the neoclassical symmetry of the tripartite façade with the decorativism of Art Nouveau. There is no lack of neo-medieval hints, such as the battlements under the balustrades. Arranged on three levels, it exhibits a ground floor in ashlar characterized by a central volume protruding between the two lateral stairs, decorated with circular motifs. The steps of the two stairs lead to the terrace surrounded by a stone balustrade, the three French windows directly access the main floor. The upper level is characterized above all by the pilasters, the double pilasters and the richness of the friezes, with the shapes of swans, flowers and leaves. In the center dominates a shell that bears the imprinted initials carved on a sort of shield.
Finally the building ends with a semicircular tympanum: it features a floral motif, the year of construction and the inscription of the old name of the building, & ldquo; Villa Lucia & rdquo ;. At the top, a nice figurine peeps out: a putto who gazes entranced at the immense garden, the real beating heart of this residence. Entering the villa from the ground floor, through an arched door protected by a green shutter, you go down a few steps: and here we are in the living area consisting of a cozy dining room characterized by a lowered cross vault.
The walls, painted in a soft ocher color, are embellished with frescoes depicting lively baskets and festoons of fruit that are repeated along the entire perimeter of the room. On the ground, you can & ograve; admire the perfectly preserved ancient floor: it reproduces various multicolored geometric shapes. On the left there are two doors, one gives access to the large kitchen, the other leads, via a staircase to the cellar in the basement. To the right there are two other study rooms that also have two independent entrances from the outside. The upper noble floor is accessed through a liberty glass window and the staircase. The first room you enter is; the wonderful main hall, dominated by a high vault decorated with various ornamental motifs.
The geometric lines and the various figures do the trick
