Salamone Palace in Sutera
The Salamone Palace in Sutera, today reduced to a few ruins, is one of the most representative monuments in the history of the village.
It was built in the fifteenth century at the behest of the noble Salamone family, one of the most influential of the time. Among its owners stands out the figure of Francesco Salamone born in this building in 1478.
Francesco Salamone was one of the 13 one of the thirteen fighters of the challenge of barletta which took place on February 13, 1503, historical clash between the Sicilian and French knights. It is said that Francesco Salamone returned to Sutera a year after the conflict and was welcomed as a hero by his fellow citizens. Today this episode is remembered by a commemorative slab placed near the Palazzo Salamone in Sutera.
Today of the spectacular Palazzo Salamone only a few perimeter walls and small parts of its interiors remain. From these elements it was however possible to reconstruct the original plan.
