Abstract

The Castle Muscettola of Leporano (Taranto, Apulia, Italy) has undergone many alterations and modifications, due to the changing destination: from feudal residence to fortified palace, from farm to the seat of the city council. The revamp includes a partial redevelopment with the creation of an archaeological museum. The city needs a place for preserving and valorizing the archaeological finds of the small promontory settlement between Porto Perone and Porto Saturo, attended since the II millennium BC. Project area into the castle, currently unused, includes “bottaie” (cellars), used for the storage of wine until 1980. The concrete structures of bottaie not interfere with the wall of the vaulted space in which they are inserted; therefore, the surgery involves the preservation of the same for the construction of a chronological museum tour, divided into three levels. The flexibility of the spaces is interesting, obtained through the wise exhibition with materials and techniques related to local businesses.
