The Amastuola farm is located on a hill dominating the Ionian arch and is part of the 100 masserias of Crispiano in the province of Taranto. Today the farm Amastuola, now almost completely recovered, houses indoor and outdoor reception areas, bar, wine tasting room, bookshop, restaurant, conference room, expo spaces of Magna Graecia and 18 rooms. The materials used for the furnishings, coverings, finishes and additions have been dictated by the local tradition: wood, iron, majolica, stone, cement and tuff. The reception block is a volume in cor-ten steel located at the entrance of the large courtyard and well distinguished from the masses of the masseria; externally hidden by the wall of the main facade, it is inserted between the two massive ancient bodies in tuff. A large window made of iron with a traditional FerroFinestra profile faces the courtyard protected by a sunblind made of cor-ten sheet metal laser cut with a pattern of round holes (grape berries) that leave a glimpse of the outline of large leaves of vineyard. On the outside a gate in cor-ten steel is the entrance to the restaurant and is opposed to the large arched window that faces the large courtyard, and the sequence of side arches of the small court. The choice of FerroFinestra profiles with very reduced sections guarantees the maximum brightness of the interior spaces and creates a continuity between the various spaces.
