Siponto Archaeological Area

The archaeological area of Siponto testifies the importance reached by the ancient Siponto during Roman times (Roman settlement from 194 BC), when it became one of the main ports of the Regio II. The ruins of the early Christian basilica with three naves, central apse and mosaic floor, remind us that it was one of the most important diocese of the region. Fine mosaic floors relating to the construction of the basilica (4th century AD) and its renovation, which take place in the following century, are visible inside the medieval church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
The church, built between the end of the XI and the beginning of the XII century, is one of the most important example of Apulian Romanesque Architecture. Since 2016 the project “where the art reconstruct the time” set in Siponto and an innovative installation made of wire mesh was realized by the young artist Edoardo Tresoldi. This new kind of Basilica is composed of 4500 metres welded zinc-coated mesh; it is 14 metres tall and it weighs about 7 tons.
