About Vito Sangirardi:
In Naples he attended courses at the Royal University of Architecture, graduating on December 21, 1938. After a few years in Naples, he returned to Apulia where in 1941 he married Luigia Mastronardi, from whom he had four children, and lived in Sannicandro (Bari) where he also had his first studio. It is a period of about 9 years of activity, interrupted by the war events in which he is forced to participate in the military genius.
With the passing of the years after the war, the center of interest of his activity moves towards the capital; therefore, since 1953 he resides in Bari, where he mainly carries out his profession, which however is of widespread interest throughout the Apulian territory. Since 1953 his office is located in via Abbrescia 89, until 1968, when he moved to the 2nd floor of a building designed by him and owned by Assicurazioni Generali in via Michelangelo Signorile 2, where since 1979 he shares office and activities with his son Germano.
In 1960 he was elected President of the Order of Architects of Puglia, remaining in office until 1971. In this role, having worked continuously for a long time, especially in Bari, he was able to participate actively in the city debate on its urban development, leaving several contributions on the subject, communicated at conferences and through newspaper articles.
