A beautiful town in the boot of Italy (aka the south of the country), Gioia del Colle is considered to be a part of the city of Bari in Apulia that is perched on the Murge Plateau. With a history traced back to the 7th Century BC, Gioia del Colle is famous for its "Fior di latte" mozzarella and its "Gioia del Colle Primitivo" wine. Its economy is firmly based in dairy farming and agriculture as well as its wines from red to white, rose, sweet and fortified liquoroso. The town grew around an old Byzantine fortress during the Middle Ages and expanded in the 12th Century when it was under the domain of Norman Count Richard of Hauteville who decided to build a castle, the Castle of Gioia del Colle. Local legends abound to do with lost jewels, scandalous liasons, imprisonment and breasts being cut off. The city's historical heart is where you will find the locals hanging out in one of the many terraced cafes sipping an aperatif or coffee before heading off to a coworking venue to get creative.
Italians have a creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech-savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "startup" because it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Gioia Del Colle may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city, plus there are the meandering globetrotters with laptops in their backpacks that linger longer than they should in this beautiful area. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate before indulging in a nighttime vino to mark the end of another fantastic day.
