  • Visiting Chieti we were attracted to this beautiful building on the main street just restored. It is a palace built on Roman foundations (witness the underground path called Tecta) which today acts as a multifunctional space with a library, a theatre, Conference Hall and Museum. Inside, in addition to the interesting architecture in which we remember the great staircase in the style of "villa pompeiana", you can admire numerous works of contemporary painting. The many rooms contain very interesting works such as hyper-realist who earned the interest of children. It is certainly a stop not mancae if you find yourself in Chieti, especially considering the difficulties encountered by the revert Carichieti (owner of the Palace) in keeping it open to the public.
