AboutAlways towards new challenges
Raffaele Barletta starts operating in the Real Estate development in 1953 with Barletta Costruzioni during the demographic and economic boom.
Barletta Costruzioni built several units for the private and public sector in Rome and in its hinterland, especially in the city of Latina in which the company has developed over 2,700 units.
With the overcrowded RE market during the economic boom, the key was innovation. For this reason the Group started to focus its investments in hinterland cities which were facing an exponential growth phase.
During the second economic boom of the 80s, Barletta Costruzioni developed over 6,000 units across central Italy for both public and private clients. Additionally, the Group has developed and donated to public and charity entities units and buildings such as kindergartens, schools, churches and accommodations.
