Palazzo Caputi

Palazzo Caputi is a palace in Ruvo di Puglia, built in 1592 at the behest of Domenico Caputi, and nowadays houses conferences and events.

The façade is divided in three parts, characterised by ashlar, and is really similar to palazzo Avitalia. The large entrance portal has a curved shape and bears the big balcony of the second part.

The interior has a rectangular courtyard, partly covered with a barrel vault and lunettes ending with capitals. The uncovered part enhances the balustrade sustained by decorated corbels with low relief. A large loggia overlooks the entrance hall, whose elegant columns are placed on the balustrade. In this room it is possible to notice two elements: the entrance to the old family chapel and a Roman grave tombstone. This evidence probably belonged to the Caputi collection, consisting of vases and coins of the Magna – Graecia time of Ruvo, nowadays lost. The vault of the hall is decorated with golden plasters, typical of the rococo style. In 1792 another building was connected to the first one, always belonging to Caputi family.
