There are places that seem to have always been there. Places that the soul recognizes, even though the consciousness is barely aware of them. Sometimes even a fleeting scent or soft breeze suffices to awaken a childhood memory or evoke an image that says: I am home. The Ostuni Art Resort is such a place
Just the sight of these ancient trulli nestled amidst an olive grove seemingly forgotten by time is like meeting a soulmate. There’s nothing alien here, no unease. You reach out and touch the gnarled trunk of an olive tree that has stood in this very spot for centuries, even millennia. The aromas of lavender and rosemary and dry soil somehow soothe and invigorate at the same time. The chirping of crickets is the only intrusions to the eternal silence of this untouched landscape.
When Giorgio and Giulio Angella came to Ostuni, the White City, in search of a unique piece of land, they surely sensed the still breath of time. The brothers knew immediately that here they would bring their dream to fruition. They conceived it as a place for celebrating shared cultural roots and for bolstering interpersonal relationships. The two deeply understand the importance of doing so, and created the Ostuni Art Resort with this vision in mind.
After years of painstaking restoration, the resort blends into the landscape as if it had always been a part of it. Today, groups of friends and families immerse themselves in ancient rhythm of the South. Giorgio and Giulio have not only managed to bring back to life the original feel of the buildings, but have also found here an ideal “living space” for their impressive collection of contemporary art. They have created a place of timeless beauty.
