Corrado Giaquinto Art Gallery of Bari

Museum and Art Gallery of Medieval and Modern Art

The Provincial Art Gallery of Bari , also known as the Corrado Giacquinto Art Gallery of Bari , was established on 12 July 1928.

From its foundation until 1936, the Pinacoteca di Bari was housed in the Government Palace. In 1936 it was transferred to the Palazzo della Provincia, built on a project by the engineer Luigi Baffa, where it still has its headquarters. Since 2002 it has been named after the Apulian painter Corrado Giaquinto , born in Molfetta in 1703 and died in Naples in 1766, of which the Museum exhibits seven works

Its patrimony was constituted through the confluence of the nucleus of paintings already preserved in the Pinacoteca annexed to the Provincial Archaeological Museum built in 1875, of other paintings sold as a deposit by Apulian churches and convents (particularly important is the deposit of the Archbishop's Curia of Bari), of works obtained in storage by the National Galleries of Naples and Rome and others purchased by the Provincial Administration of Bari itself.
