Founded by Swiss confectioners from the Grisons, now in their fifth generation. It was here that, after Garibaldi’s exploits of 1860, the Bari plebiscite decreed the annexation of the city to the Kingdom of Italy. Illustrious guests included Kaiser Wilhelm II, Victor Emanuel III and Queen Elena, Italo Balbo, General Badoglio, Umberto Nobile, the first president of the Italian republic De Nicola, the philosopher Benedetto Croce, and the scientist Marconi. It moved from its original premises in Corso Vittorio but has lost none of its great cultural traditions.
Via Roberto da Bari 79/81, 70122 Bari (BA)
