The Civic Museum of Barletta is located in the historic center of the city, inside the historic castle. The Museum was born at the end of the nineteenth century with a first nucleus of archaeological finds donated by citizens. With subsequent donations, collections have been significantly increased. The exhibition is divided into three main sections: the ancient gallery, the nineteenth century gallery and the “Ferdinando Cafiero” gallery. The ancient gallery includes more than 50 works dating from the late fourteenth century and the second half of the eighteenth century. Among the main artists are: Francesco Solimena, Andrea Vaccaro, Luca Giordano, Giambattista Tiepolo, Mattia Preti and many others. The most relevant themes are certainly those of the Raphaelesque and Leonardo school, still life and court painting. The Nineteenth Century Gallery houses nearly 40 paintings by De Nittis, Irolli, Cammarano, Palizzi, Toma and Netti. A small group of works focuses on the theme of nudes, plastic drawings and the landscape. The itinerary ends with the Gallery of Ferdinando Cafiero with objects in wood, bronze, iron, copper, marble, terracotta, paintings, prints and engravings. The Civic Museum hosts temporary exhibitions and cultural events.
