Palazzo Sylos- Calò in Bitonto is located inside the Renaissance heart of Bitonto. It was built in 1529, probably by an architect from Tuscany, as it results from the large portico on eight columns, with different bases and capitals, recalling the elegance and the harmony of the Florentine style of the 15th century.
The complex consists of three parts which surround the internal courtyard, with a quadrangular shape. The large loggia on the first floor, which overlooks piazza Cavour, is a symbol of the Renaissance works of art in Puglia.
After the restoration of 1989, nowadays it is the seat of the Galleria Nazionale della Puglia (National Gallery of Puglia) Girolamo and Rosaria Devanna.
The first body of Palazzo Sylos Calò was built around 1529 and, after a period of stagnation, it was completed in 1583 with the construction of the loggia by Alfonso Sylos. For the Sylos family, this palace represented their love for the Arts and a symbol of their wealth. The loggia was built over old buildings, probably dating back to the XIV century, which formed part of the ancient Church of All Saints, deconsecrated in 1770 and given to Francesco Saverio Sylos by the bishop Nicola.
The large portal at the entrance, of Tuscan style, leads to the porticoed courtyard and is formed by two stone pilasters with two imperial effigies under the string-course cornice, under which is the Sylos family’s coat of arms. The main facade, nowadays almost completely transformed by several openings, is the typical expression of a Renaissance palace. Coverings are roof shaped or, the most recent, terrace shaped.
