Casamassima

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Puglia  /  Province of Bari  /  Casamassima
Casamassima is a town and comune in the province of Bari, in Apulia, southern Italy.The town is located inland from the Italian coastline, thrives and is built on agriculture, primarily that of wine, olives and almond production.Casamassima can be found in the Bari Province of the Apulian region in the Southern Zone of Italy. Only 223m above sea level from the Adriatic Sea, and consisting of a population of approximately 16,388 (equating to about 211.7 people per square kilometer), this township is located on one of the eastern terraces of the Murge. The Murge is a characteristic area of Apulia that is composed of limestone hills, near the edge of the Bari basin (conca di Bari—A depression formed when the underlying limestone is eroded by underground water and collapses).The settlement is connected with the Bari-Putignano railroad line and the Bari-Gioia Del Colle-Taranto highway.HistoryThis settlement is rich in culture and labor from its agricultural industry and the delectable Italian ambiance, all due in part from its citizens. Also, this town has a rich history of how it came into existence – a captivating story in itself, from acquiring its namesake to legendary origins to factual possession. Up until about the end of the 10th century, the existence and history of this Italian village could not be documented, at least not until 962 AD, during the occupation of Bisanzio. However, the origins of the town are known to go back to the 7th, 8th, & 9th centuries during the Longobard occupation.Completely humiliated by the emperor Frederico II who had taken Casamassima during the feud led by the Normans, the emperor Enrico VI granted the township to the Massimi family in 1195. Once the feuding ended, and the Massimi Family obtained possession, the Italian village was returned to its rightful owners in 1254 by the emperor Corrado IV.
