Spazio Murat is located in the center of Bari, in Piazza Ferrarese, the point of contact between the old city and the modern village. Founded in 1818 as a food market, the space was demolished in the mid-twentieth century and later rebuilt in the nineties. Spazio Murat today hosts exhibitions, meetings, workshops and the Puglia Design Store concept store. Spazio Murat is one of the most popular cultural containers in the city, dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of contemporary arts. Together with the Teatro Margherita and the Ex Mercato del Pesce, it constitutes the Contemporary Pole of the City of Bari. It is the first space to host the activities of the Pole, and is characterized by a rich program of events, with particular attention to visual arts and design.
