THE HISTORY OF BARI

9th century

Bari today

Bari in the past

Its geographical position made Bari a preferential route for the Arab expansion. It was occupied and became the seat of a small emirate until 871 when it became part of the Eastern Empire again.

In that period the smart people from Bari (Baresi) learned from the Arabs anything which proved to be useful. They developed trade and skilled activities, exchanging different currencies and using different measures. They adopted Arab clothes and became good at embroidery; they produced cotton and played cards.

Many artists were influenced by Arab civilisation , as shown in some decorations of the Cathedral.

Hints of Arab customs are also in peoples’ names and in the local dialects.

The Emirate in Bari finished around 871 when it was conquered by the eastern emperor Basilio and by the emperor of the Sacred Roman Empire Ludovico.
