Palazzo De Maio – De vita – De Luca in Foggia, built in the 16th century, stands in the historic centre of the city.
The portal is framed by two grooved columns, topped by Ionic capitals, which bear a moulded cornice, at whose centre there is a balcony. The architrave, embellished with reliefs decorated with floral motifs, with a curved tympanum above, is topped by a stone coat of arm.
There is an epigraph, which still recalls the construction, where it is written “Ut videat et videatur”, “To see and to be seen”: it is a real synthesis of the style of that time, when the functionality of the buildings had to be combined with the beauty.
This building was constructed after 1545, the year the nobleman Cesare de Maio, who already owned a building, bought the ruins of two workshops from the Foggia Chapter, with the intention of constructing a single unit. The building was alienated later in 1696 by the reverend Giuseppe De Vita di San Marco in Lamis, who built the third floor level with a lovely portico.
