Via Cesare Battisti , 47, Laterza, (Taranto)
In 2003, after the reorganisation of the Archive and Library of the City Hall of Laterza, the "Citadel of Culture" was opened. It is a beautiful polyhedral structure hosting many different internal structures: a library with a rich collection of over 8000 books; the Municipal Historical Archive with important historical documents and the Educational Museum of Archeology, which has findings from the Neolithic civilization, ancient fragments of ceramic objects and artefacts dating from the 7th century B.C. to the 19th century A.D. The artefacts in the Educational Museum of Archeology allow us to reconstruct the local history by providing useful information on local cultures and also outlining specific historical contexts.
