In 551 A.D Gallipoli became the religious seat for the bishop and passed under many rulers: Saracens, Byzantines, Normans and Aragonese. In 1484 Gallipoli was forced to surrender to the Venetians. In 1575 Gallipoli took part in the Battle of Lepanto against the Turks. During the 1 ih century Gallipoli, besides being a very important fortified town became a big port for oil loading. In this period there was also a proliferation of brotherhoods and the prosperity of the ruling classes gave a stimulus to the building industry (Churches, Palaces, Courtyards, etc.) and the art of painting (Among the most famous painters we remember: Giovanni Andrea Coppola, Giandomenico Catalano, Nicola e Carlo Malinconico). In the 19th century, however, being involved in the Italian Risorgimento, Gallipoli underwent a decline in its port activity and maritime traffic trade. Today Gallipoli is a proud example of independence and resistance shown with proud zeal in the crowned crest of its sacred cock stilI ready to crow against those who try to disturb the peace of its industrious people and it has become one of the most important seaside resorts in the Mediterranean.
