The former convent of Santa Teresa dei Maschi (St. Theresa of the Males) is situated at the corner of the streets Strada Lamberti and Strada Santa Teresa dei Maschi, behind the namesake church. Construction began in 1671 to house the Discalced Carmelites who had arrived in Bari in 1630. The friars, however, had been forced to roam from church to church before settling down. They had first met in the church of San Giovanni Battista (St. John the Baptist), then, in that of San Rocco (St. Roch), then, San Gregorio (St. Gregory), and, finally, settled in the street called Strada Lamberti, named after the Lamberti family, who lodged the friars in the Church of St. Gregory, also called San Gregorio de Falconibus, owned by the family. A church dedicated to Saint Theresa of Avila was built adjacent to the convent around 1696. This, however, was not the only church dedicated to the saint. Indeed, another church known to the people of Bari as the Church of Santa Teresa delle Donne (St. Theresa of the Females) was located in Piazza San Pietro (St. Peter's Square) and run by the Discalced Carmelites. The name "of the Males" derived from the need to distinguish the new church from the pre-existing one, and this name was thus extended to denote the convent complex. To this day, the Carmelite Order emblem, composed of three stars and a cross, and bearing the Latin inscription "Domine susceptor meus es tu - et refugium meum” (O Lord, thou art my protector and my refuge) hangs above the main entrance.
The entire convent complex of Santa Teresa dei Maschi underwent a series of renovations between 1997 and 2001. Its internal layout was completely redesigned and, since 2003, has housed the Bari De Gemmis Provincial Library.

End of construction 1671
The Discalced Carmelites settled in Bari around 1630, pursuant to the reform of the Carmelite Order of the Ancient Observance reformed by the two Spanish saints, St. Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross.
They had initially found hospitality in the Church of San Giovanni Battista (St. John the Baptist), but when it no longer satisfied their needs, they purchased some property with subsidies offered by the Gironda family. First, they purchased property located in the street Strada San Gregorio from the cleric Nicholas Palombo in 1637, then, property belonging to the Ventura brothers in Strada della Chiesa, after that, the house of the abbot Giambattista Calò in a street called the Palmentello, and, lastly, the house of Pietro Fanelli in a place called San Gregorio de Falconibus. These properties were united in order to construct the current convent located near the Church of San Gregorio de Falconibus. Petroni reports that the Church of Santa Teresa dei Maschi was built in its place in 1696. The convent complex was completed in 1671. The convent hosted the Brotherhood of the Most Holy Mother of God from 1710 to when it was abolished between 1806 and 1815. The Bourbons then used it as a resting spot for the troops during the years of French rule. In 1859, the convent complex became a women's prison. Then, in the early 20th century, it was used as an assistance centre for the children of inmates, and to house several accommodation facilities and institutions.
