Welcome to Casino Garzia

From neoclassical villa to elegant residence of art

Casino Garzia is located in Alezio and was built by the will of Bonaventura Garzia, a doctor and mayor of Gallipoli. Representative of the bourgeoisie, he cultivated profound patriotic-Risorgimento feelings. Around the seventies of the nineteenth century he built a lovely house in the Alezio countryside as his family’s summer residence. The villa, in the neoclassical style, still retains the taste of the client who wanted to give a linguistic reference to his medical profession in the interior design project. The halls with star and pavilion vaults still preserve the frescoes of the period. In the current dining room, which was certainly Bonaventura’s studio, there is a sort of pictorial exegesis of one’s political thinking and acting. In the large garden of 6600 square meters, characterized by olive trees, citrus and eucalyptus trees, there is a nineteenth-century colonnade and an old apiary. Walking inside and outside the villa are bronze sculptures and canvases by the artist Enrico Muscetra. Art and music are the protagonists of this villa, strongly desired by a well-known Italian artist and a famous Polish composer.

The first bedroom, furnished with original Art Deco furniture, has a bathroom with a shower and is also equipped with an anteroom with a sofa bed and TV.
