The territory

Corn, oil and wine are the three typical products of traditional Apulian agriculture and the regional cuisine. Bari offers some fine examples of this, serving up a wide variety of pasta, wines, seafood and fish dishes, as well as vegetables and greens that are cultivated in the agricultural areas inland.

The Fiera del Levante, the largest trade fair in Europe, is testament to the city’s role as both a commercial hub and a meeting place between East and West. Industry has an important role in the economy of the city and the wider metropolitan area. In addition to the food sector, the chemical, petrochemical, textile, mechanical and wood sectors are of significant importance. Bari is one of the capitals of Italian theatre with over 14 performing arts venues currently in operation.

 In the cultural sphere it is also worth noting that the University of Bari, the Polytechnic, the Academy of Fine Arts and the Free Mediterranean University between them boast around 100,000 students each year enrolled in the various humanities, scientific and technical studies faculties.
