“My Grandmother was born in the kitchen of this very house”, states Aldo Melpignano, the proud member of this rooted family and partly to blame for creating one of the best interpretations of the Masseria we ever came across.

“After years of dereliction, the house came up for auction again and our family decided it was destined to be ours once more. In 2006 we completed the task and has been run by my lovely Aunt ever since.”
