The Rector’s welcome

    Students’, artists’ and intellectuals’ mobility is an old European tradition which
dates back to the Middle Ages, to the birth of the first universities and Study Centres,
renewed between the 17th and 18th centuries through the Grand Tour, which considered
our Country as one of the most important destinations.
    Through this tour, the young belonging to the European aristocracy and
bourgeoisie learned other Countries’ languages and culture, and also how to become
European citizens.
    This tradition revives through the LLP (Lifelong Learning Programme)-Erasmus
programme.
    Also our young University, which, since its birth has considered internationalization
as one of its most qualifying points, feeds, in a significant way, the exchanges of
students and teachers with other European Universities. We firmly believe that the
presence at other universities is an important occasion to meet different experiences
capable of influencing positively and significantly the formation of men and citizens
alike.
    Students who choose our University for their LLP/Erasmus programme, can deepen
their studies in the fields of Law, Statistics, Environment, Geology, Biotechnologies,
Civil, Computer, Energy and Telecommunications Engineering, Economics and
Business Organization, aiming at very high qualifications.
    The numerous traditions and historical-artistic vestiges, its natural and
extraordinarily beautiful environment are additional reasons for foreign students to
choose our University as their destination.
    I’m sure the commitment and the availability of our Teachers and of our Technical-
Administrative Staff will make the students’ stay culturally and socially stimulating.
    Therefore I’m very pleased to welcome to the University of Sannio all the students
who will take part in the LLP/Erasmus programme, on my behalf and also on behalf
of the whole academic community.

                                                                             The Rector
                                                               Prof. Filippo Bencardino

                      LLP/ERASMUS PROGRAMME
1. What is the LLP/ERASMUS Programme?
    It is an integrated programme of the European Union (EU) aimed at giving a
support to Universities, to students and academic staff with the purpose of
intensifying mobility and co-operation in the field of education in the whole EU.
The LLP/ERASMUS Programme offers students enrolled at any EU university the
possibility of spending a period of study (from three to twelve months) in another
EU Member State and receiving the full recognition of such a period of study. An
essential condition for the assignment of the LLP/ERASMUS financial support is
that the study period and the examinations taken abroad are fully recognised in
the student’s Country of origin.
    The advantages of studying abroad are numerous: a deep knowledge of the
foreign languages, a direct contact with the culture of the host Country, greater
self-esteem and many new friends; what’s more, the ERASMUS programme offers
students, who spend a period of certified study abroad, numerous professional
opportunities. Now the LLP/ERASMUS financial support is granted through
contracts stipulated directly by the Universities.

2. Conditions for the assignment of the LLP/ERASMUS financial support to
students.
    The admission to the LLP/ERASMUS financial support is subject to the
following conditions:
a) the period of study abroad must be between three and twelve months and must
    be carried out at a University of another EU Member State;
b) students must receive a written formal recognition, generally by the University
    of origin, for the period of studies abroad.
    Students are exempted from paying fees at the host University (whether or not
fees are paid at the University of origin). While abroad, students continue to benefit
from financial support or grant at national level or from other sources.

3. How to participate in the LLP/ERASMUS Programme.
   Students who wish to participate in the LLP/ERASMUS Programme must
submit a request (generally within the month of February) attaching a certificate of
the examinations passed with marks, issued by the administrative Office of their
University.
   Students must indicate the area of study they are interested in, the University
where they wish to go, as well as the courses they want to attend. Students must
pass a language test and an interview.
   In order to obtain the LLP/ERASMUS financial support, selected students must
contact the LLP/ERASMUS Programme Office at their University.

          EUROPEAN CREDIT TRANSFER SYSTEM (ECTS)

WHAT IS ECTS?
   The European Union promotes interuniversity cooperation as a means of improving
the quality of education for the benefit of students and higher education institutions;
students’ mobility is a predominant element of such an interuniversity cooperation.
The LLP/Erasmus programme clearly demonstrates that studying abroad can be a
particularly valuable experience as it is not only the best way to learn about other
countries, ideas, languages and cultures, but, increasingly, it is also an important
element in academic and professional career development.

   The recognition of studies and diplomas is a prerequisite for the creation of an
open European area of education and training where students and teachers can freely
move. That is why the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was established
within the Erasmus programme as a means of improving academic recognition of
study periods abroad.

   ECTS is mainly an instrument to create transparency, to build bridges between
institutions and to widen the choices available to students. The system makes it
easier for institutions to recognise the learning achievements of students through
the use of commonly understood measurements - credits and grades - and it also
provides a means to interpret the national systems of higher education.

MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF ECTS
    The ECTS system is based on three core elements: information on study
programmes and student achievements, mutual agreement (between the partner
institutions and the student) and the use of ECTS credits (to indicate the student’s
workload). These three core elements are made operational through the use of three
key documents: the information package, the application form/learning agreement
and the transcript of records. Most of all, ECTS is made operational by students,
teachers and institutions who wish to make study abroad an integral part of the
educational experience. In itself, ECTS in no way regulates the content, structure or
equivalence of study programmes. These are issues of quality which have to be determined
by the higher education institutions themselves when establishing a satisfactory basis
for cooperation through bilateral or multilateral agreements. The code of good practice
called ECTS provides people involved with tools to create transparency and to
facilitate academic recognition.

   Full academic recognition is a conditio sine qua non for students’ mobility in the
framework of the LLP/Erasmus programme. Full academic recognition means that
the study period abroad (including examinations or other forms of assessment) replaces
a comparable period of study at the home university (including examinations or other
forms of assessment), though the content of the agreed study programme may differ.
   The use of ECTS is voluntary and is based on mutual trust and confidence in the
academic performance of partner institutions. Each institution selects its own partners.

TRANSPARENCY
  ECTS provides transparency through the following means:
• ECTS credits, which are numerical values allocated to course units to describe the
  student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each
  course unit requires in relation to the total quantity of work necessary to complete a
  full year of academic study at the institution, that is, lectures, practical work, seminars,
  tutorials, fieldwork, individual study - in the library or at home - and examinations
  or other assessment practice. ECTS is thus based on a full student workload and
  not limited to attendance hours only. Within ECTS, 60 credits represent the
  workload of an academic year of study and normally 30 credits correspond to a
  semester and 20 credits to a term.
• The ECTS information package which supplies useful information to students
  and staff about institutions, faculties/departments, the organisation and structure
  of studies and course units.
• The ECTS learning agreement covering the programme of study to be taken and the
  ECTS credits to be awarded upon its satisfactory completion. The agreement
  commits the student to undertaking study abroad as an integral part of his or her
  higher education, the home institution to guaranteeing full academic recognition
  of the credits gained abroad and the host institution to providing the agreed
  course units, subject to the calendar.
• The ECTS transcript of records which shows students’ learning achievements in a
  way which is comprehensive, commonly understood and easily transferable from one
  institution to another.

   Good communication and flexibility are also needed to facilitate the academic
recognition of studies completed or taken abroad. In this respect the ECTS coordinators
have an important role to play as their main tasks are to deal with the academic and
administrative aspects of ECTS.

   The full range of course units of the faculty/department using ECTS should in
principle be made available to the host student, including doctorate course units.
Students should be enabled to attend regular course units - and not courses specifically



                                             19
                                                              Europan credit transfer system (ECTS)


designed for them - and should be given the possibility of fulfilling the host institution’s
requirements to get a degree or diploma. ECTS credits ensure that programmes will
be reasonably organized in terms of workload for the period of study abroad. For
example, a student whose choice of course units totals 120 ECTS credits for an academic
year would have to work twice as much as an average local student at the receiving
institution, while a student whose programme totals 30 ECTS credits for a whole
academic year would be undertaking much less work than the average local student
and would in effect be studying part-time.

    ECTS also enables further studies abroad. With ECTS, a student will not necessarily
go back to the home institution after the study period abroad; he/she may prefer to stay
at the host institution - possibly to gain a degree - or even move to a third institution.
The institutions themselves decide whether or not this is acceptable and what conditions
the student must fulfil to obtain a diploma or transfer his/her registration. The
transcript of records is particularly useful in this context as it provides a history of
the students’ academic achievements, which will help institutions to make these
decisions.

                     THE UNIVERSITY OF SANNIO
    HISTORICAL HINTS ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY OF SANNIO

    The University of Sannio began as a part of the University of Salerno. Initially, it was
included in the four-year plan 1986-90. Through Rectorial decrees, on September
10th 1990, the following departments were set up: the Faculty of Economic and
Social Sciences (now Faculty of Economics) with the degree courses in Banking
Economics, Financial Economics, Insurance Economics, and Statistics; the Faculty
of Engineering with a degree course in Computer Engineering. With the three-year
plan 1991-93, the Faculty of Science was set up with additional degree courses in
Biology and Geology.
    The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences was managed by a Technical Committee
until October 31st, 1994. The Faculty of Engineering was managed by the Faculty of
Engineering of the University of Salerno. Since November 1st, 1994 both Faculties have
had an autonomous Faculty Board.
    The Consortium for the Promotion of Culture and University Studies has contributed
to the implementation of the University in Benevento and it is still playing a major part
in its promotion. This organization was established in 1987 by the Chamber of
Commerce, the Province of Benevento and the Town of Benevento. Afterwards, other
public Institutions joined the Consortium. By the Ministerial Decree n.1524, on
December 29th, 1997, the University of Sannio was officially recognized and became
autonomous on January 1st, 1998.
    In the academic year 2001/2002 the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences was
set up. Its degree courses, belonging to the field of economics, were previously set up in
the Faculty of Economics.
    The Faculty of Economics includes degree courses in Scienze Giuridiche, Operatore
giuridico d’impresa, Scienze statistiche ed attuariali, the specialization courses in
Giurisprudenza e Scienze statistiche ed attuariali, and the single-cycle degree in
Giurisprudenza.
    The Faculty of Engineering includes degree courses in Ingegneria civile, Ingegneria
energetica, Ingegneria informatica, Ingegneria delle telecomunicazioni. The specialization
courses in Ingegneria dell’Automazione, Ingegneria Informatica, Ingegneria delle
Telecomunicazioni.
    The Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences includes degree courses in Economia
e commercio, Economia e gestione dei servizi turistici and Organizzazione e gestione della
sicurezza. The specialization course in Economia e Management.
    The Faculty of Sciences includes degree courses in Biotecnologia, Scienze ambientali,
Scienze biologiche, Scienze geologiche and the specialization courses in Biologia, Scienze
geologiche per le risorse, l’ambiente ed il territorio.

        CRONICHON SANCTAE SOPHIAE

A word of welcome by the President of the Province

    It’s beyond doubt that the LLP/Erasmus Programme is one of the most suitable
ways to promote exchanges with people of different languages and cultures.
    It’s a very good programme carried out with the collaboration of different countries
and it should spread all over the world and involve all universities.
    Hoping that this could become true (as a great man of Ancient Rome wrote:
“culture can even shake the stones”) I’m very glad to welcome the LLP/Erasmus students
who have chosen Sannio to enrich their culture.
    Here they can appreciate the quality and excellence of the scientific and educational
activities of the University of Sannio.
    Now I would like to say something about our land.
    Benevento province has lots of cultural and natural resources. Its central position in
the South Apennine mountains between the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic seas, has
stimulated thirty centuries of human history, culture and art.
    The historical events which took place here and deeply affected Italian history are
still remembered: the humiliation of the Roman Legions caused by Samnite soldiers at
Forche Caudine in 321 B.C.; the Romans’ victory on Pirro in 275 B.C. and their
subsequent political growth; the battle reported by Dante Alighieri between Carlo
D’Angiò and Manfredi di Svevia in 1266 which marked the end of a new imperial
attempt of Restoration.
    The monumental, pictorial and artistic treasures, the Magna Grecia, the Samnite
and Roman archaeological finds, the Iside Temple archaeological finds which are the
only finds of a neo-Egyptian cult outside Egypt, the gold coins of Benevento Mint,
Benevento Writing and Music of the Longobard period, everything is a precious proof
of a cultural tradition born here which now, thanks to the LLP/Erasmus programme
of the University of Sannio, finds its deeper links with European and international
cultures.
    In this framework, as the President of the province of Benevento and in the name of
the hospitable people of Sannio I greet, with warmth and enthusiasm, the LLP/Erasmus
students who are ambassadors of the communion among people in peace and progress.

                                                              Mr. Carmine Nardone, M.P.

The Mayor’s welcome message


    A welcome to all of you, students of the University of Sannio, to those who are resident
in our wonderful town and to those who come from other places.
    As Major of Benevento, I am extremely glad to welcome you during your studies and
I am absolutely sure that you will remain fascinated by the hospitality and friendship of
Benevento and its people.
    The University of Sannio is as young as you, however in a few years it has reached
important goals. It’s famous and known everywhere because of its teachers’ expertise and
the quality of its courses.
    These elements, together with your capabilities, will allow you to enrich your knowledge
and to make your background become a winning one.
    I really hope you will be able to discover Benevento thoroughly. It is a place full of
history. Its origins go back to mythology, while during the past centuries it has been able
to export its own name all over the world thanks to the laboriousness and capabilities of
its people.
    Nowadays, also thanks to you, young citizens of the European Union, Benevento
revives its ancient importance. During your free time, I am sure you will appreciate the
testimonies of the past scattered everywhere.
    Be careful! It will be difficult to spot out the numerous beauties in town; you will need
particular attention and time to find and enjoy them.
    In each corner there is something to discover: historical monuments and big artists’
masterpieces; gorgeous churches and landscapes.
    Still, you will be able to know, if you wish, the most mysterious sides of Benevento
and you will understand why this place is famous as the “witches’ town”: a mix of holy and
profane.

   I wish you “good luck” for your studies and everything else.

                                                                            Eng. Fausto Pepe

by Cosimo Damiano Fonseca

    The name Benevento brings to mind ancient tales and pleasant memories, witches and
Strega, the liqueur. According to legend, the witches would fly to the ancient walnut tree
that stands at the bottom of the Sabato valley. The name of the liqueur - strega means witch
- playing on the word evokes the idea of magic philters of witchcraft. But Benevento is
remembered mostly as the stronghold of Samnites, who forced the Romans to surrender at
the Caudine Forks pass, and as the city that became the capital of southern Lombardy.
    It was Plinio, author of the famous Historia Naturalis, who first passed on an account of
the origin of the Samnite town which grew up in that marvelous bowl at the confluence of
the Sabato and the Calore: “In the second region of the Irpini”, he wrote, “there is a colonia,
Benevento, on which this name was bestowed for a good omen, in place of its former name
of Malevento”. Scholars, philologists and literary figures have devoted pages to the quite
uncertain etymology of the name, constructing fabulous ancestries and comparing Samnite
Maleventum to its Apuleio-Garganic namesake. The latter, according to the chonicler of the
GrecoGothic war, Procopius, was characterized by the furious winds which swept in from
the Adriatic and battered the coast.
    What is certain is that the first settlement was made by the Osco-Samnites, and that on
this, according to some, the first to be imposed was that of the Greeks from the Apuleian
colony of Maleventum. Then in 268 B.C., and this time well-attested, came that of the
Romans. They had won a notable victory over Pyrrhus in the neighborhood of Benevento in
275 B.C., and they were to defeat the Carthaginians there twice, in 214 and 210 B.C.
    Anyone visiting the Samnite Museum today can reconstruct the hystory of the territory
with reasonable accuracy.
    The series of finds from the Samnite and GrecoRoman periods trace the various distinct
phases of a complex path from primitive to advanced civilization, the forms of the local
society, its organizational structures and the way in which its customs, religious beliefs and
so on were expressed. The visitor can then go on to give free range to the memory, as one
wanders through the urban web of the Osco-Samnite nucleus of the town, and then the
Roman municipium.
    Setting out from near the theatre, where the great hemisphere of the cavea has survived,
or near the imposing bulk of the Arch of Trajan, one can go on from there through the
streets heading in various directions, that show the progressive inclusion of the urban periphery
as the central hub expanded outwards. In the year 114 A.D., the people of Benevento very
rightly built a splendid monument, the arch richly decorated with reliefs, to the imperishable
memory of the “most excellent” Emperor Trajan.
    Rightly so, indeed, because his far-sighted policy had reinforced the road system which
made the Samnite city the obligatory port of call for those travelling to the most southern
part of the peninsula. The Via Appia in fact was the key axis of the road system of southern
Italy throughout antiquity.
    It was Appius Claudius who built the first stretch, between Rome and Capua, in 312

                                                                 A second Pavia of the Lombard Duchy



B.C., after the latter entered an alliance with Rome. The link with Benevento, just over 22
miles long, was created later, and finally came the extension to Brindisi. But in any case, both
the Appia and the Traiana were bound to come through Benevento. But the real hallmark of
Benevento’s identity should be sought more in the long period from the 6th to the 11th
centuries than in the period lived in symbiosis with Rome, flourishing though that was.
    In the former period, the city was capital first of a Duchy and then of a Principate, to
which the fleeing Lombards came after the surrender of Pavia to the Frankish army.
    It is no coincidence that the monk Erchemperto, who painstakingly recounted the decay
of the Lombard epic, was to speak of “reliquae Langobardorum”, and to hail Benevento
as a second Pavia - “Ticinum geminum”.
    In reality, southern Lombardy, of which Benevento was for at least four centuries the seat
of political and administrative power, never felt marginal to the larger entity of Greater
Lombardy. Common roots and a shared destiny, similarity of language, law and religion,
welded together two territories and polities which in geography were far distant from each
other and kept their separate identities.
    But way beyond the legend, and the devices used by Paul the Deacon to bring the Lombards
of the South into an identical ethnical and cultural reality - that of the Kingdom-, what is
certain is that the foundation of the Duchy of Benevento took place at the hands of a group
of warriors following a chief (whether this was Zosimus or others whose names are forgotten).
    It took concrete form without any link with the Duchy of Benevento to acquire a proper
state structure, in some ways parallel to that of the Kingdom, but always independent of it.
This began with rendering the capital strategically impregnable, and adapting it to the new
needs of the political and administrative center of the Duchy.
    The first intervention concerned the reconstruction of the city walls of the Beneventan
civitas, which in 545 had been razed to the ground by Totila. Roman material was used, and
the carved part of it, taken from the funerary monuments which flanked the Via Appia, was
gathered together to embellish the section of the walls around the gate called Porta Somma.
    Another stretch of walls was built in the 8th century by Arechi to enclose the civitas nova
created on the plain to the southwest of the Roman city. In the 6th century, the first Cathedral
was built. Another intervention involved the building of the sacrum palatium, i.e. the Ducal
Palace, which Arechi II constructed on the hill encircled by the earliest walls.
    The memory of this is today preserved in the place-name Piano di Corte, which in fact is
the name of a square in the heart of this area. In the area of the Ducal Palace, the national
church of the Lombard Dukes, dedicated to Saint Sophia, was built. This was the sacred
edifice which Arechi II had constructed to house the relics of the patron saints of the Lombard
people; it was also the church of the sovereign. Beside the church, Arechi founded the
monastery of Santa Sofia, of which the twelfth-century cloister is still preserved, with its
rhythmic pattern of four-light arabesque arches on thin elegant columns and dosserets with
rich carvings.

    With the conversion of the Longobards to the Roman Catholic faith, religious buildings
increased rapidly: we need only mention the church of Sant’Ilario at Porta Aurea, and (outside
the walls), the basilica of San Pietro, with the attached monastery built at the wish of
Theoderata, the daughter of Lupo dei Friuli, who became the wife of Romualdo I. With the
end of the principate, it was the Popes who claimed the rights over the city, partly because
the Beneventani, with the eclipse of the Principate, had immediately placed themselves under
the protection of Leo IX.
    This destiny as a “papal city”, cornerstone of the Papacy in southern Italy, was to accompany
Benevento’s history for centuries: not even the siege by Robert II Guiscard was enough to
break the umbilical cord with Rome and the Papacy.




La facciata della chiesa di Santa Sofia, considerata a livello europeo una delle più interessanti costruzioni dell’ambito
dell’architettura del primo medioevo, presenta un notevole portale della seconda metà del secolo XII. La chiesa venne
fatta edificare da Arechi II nel 762

Santa Sofia’s church façade, considered one of the most interesting early medieval buildings in Europe, has a remarkable
portal dating from the second half of the twelfth century. Arechi II had the church built in 762 A.D.

The Wonders of Benevento
by Fabio Isman

     To celebrate the extension of the Appia, the Regina Viarum the “road to the East”,on
which subsequently Jesus met St. Peter (as the Domine, quo vadis? story recounts), and on
which St. Paul traveled as a prisoner on his way to Rome, the Emperor Trajan had an arc
built in 144 A.D. It was finely decorated with reliefs, and was similar to the one which Titus
built in Rome. About forty years later, Commodus, the son of Marcus Aurelius, built the
theatre which was to be expanded in the following decades.
     Together which what remains of the temples and baths, with the portico of the Forum
and the Obelisk of Isis (as well as the Ponte Leproso by which the Appia crosses the River
Sabato before entering the city), this Arch, or Porta Aurea and the theatre, one of the best
preserved in the South, of which the lower order still remains, are the finest witnesses
which Benevento possesses of its Roman origins. The years passed, and the Middle Ages
arrived, the second period of splendor for the town.
     In 571 the city became a Lombard capital, of an independent Duchy, like Spoleto. It
survived the end of the kingdom founded in the North and endured for more than two
centuries. Towers and gateways remain from this time together with the Fort of the
Rector, on the summit of the hill, commonly known as the Castle of Manfred. The name,
however, is rejected by scholars since it is completely arbitrary.
     The Church of Santa Sofia also dates back to that period (it was founded in 762 by the
Lombard Arechi who had recently became Duke). The Church is a Byzantine building with
three apses (and the remains of the early frescoes can still be seen, featuring the stories of St.
     John the Baptist and the Virgin); it was completed in the twelfth century by a splendid
cloister with forty-seven double capitals. Since 1929 it has housed the Museum which was
first begun a century earlier, full of eloquent reminders of the past of the area, from prehistory
to our own times.
     There are beakers and vases dating back to the 7th century B.C., but also sculptures
from the Temple of Isis, the obelisk from the Temple of Domitian and the vases from the
tomb of Telesias are shown along with paintings by Solimena and Andrea Vaccaro, as well
as contemporary works by Purificato, Guttuso, Messina, Greco and others.
     The growth of the Cathedral dates from a slightly later period than that of the Museum;
an Early Christian Church of the seventh century, which was enlarged with a nave and
four aisles in the second half of the eighteenth century and then was largely destroyed by
bombs during World War II.
     Its basic form, however, dates from the period after 1077, when the city handed itself
over to the Church, and it was then too that it acquired the rare bronze doors, to which we
shall return later. The third stage of the artistic development of this city, one of the three
capitals of the Samnite area, together with Isernia and Boiano (and in 275 B.C. after the
victory of Malius Curtius Dentatus over Pyrrhus, King of Epirus, the name was changed
from Maleventum to its present title), comes after the earthquake which almost entirely
destroyed it in 1688.



                                               75
                                                                           The wonders of Benevento


    It is to the reconstruction initiated by Archbishop Vincenzo Mario Orsini, later Pope
Benedict XIII, that the important surviving eighteenth-century parts of the city are owed.
These include the Church of San Bartolomeo, the Palazzo Terragnoli, and the San Gennaro
chapel in the Church of the Annunziata. Benevento’s other important treasures include
the two Gothic cloisters of the convent of San Francesco, the Church of San Domenico
(and Vincenzo) with its fine sixteenth-century altarpiece by Donato Piperno, and the
Madonna delle Grazie, a neoclassical thank-offering for the end of the cholera outbreak of
1837. However, the Arch of Trajan and the bronze doors of the Cathedral are undoubtedly
the two greatest masterworks.
    The panels of the Arch form a sort of hymn of praise to the greatness of the emperor who
commissioned it, with scenes of the Pax Romana on the side facing towards the city, military
ventures and scenes of provincial life on the side facing the countryside, and Victory crowning
Trajan on the coffering of the vault.
    The monument owes at least some of its well-deserved fame to its exceptional state of
conservation. A French traveler of the 18th century described it as “perhaps the most
complete which still survives in Italy, since only a few fragments of the cornice are missing.”
In the age of the Grand Tour it attracted the interest of many intellectuals, for instance the
Abbé de Saint Non, whose Picturesque Voyage and Description of the Kingdom of Naples
and the Sicilies in four volumes is one of the most remarkable works of the eighteenth
century. Both Fragonard and Dominique Vivant Denon, to whom we owe the modern
shape of the Louvre, contributed to it. Apart from the Trajan’s Arch, it also describes the
ruins of the theatre (“the remains and the other things that we have found lead to the
conclusion that both the building and its decoration were similar to the amphitheatre of
Capua”), and the Fountain of Santa Sofia, while other passages are devoted to San Lorenzo,
the monastery of Camaldolensias and the “Locanda dei Viaggiatori”, or Hostel. The
doors of the Cathedral are also quite exceptional.
    Less than twenty-five of these doors, cast in bronze between the 5th and the 12th centuries,
have survived in the whole of Italy, and among the most important is this one in Benevento,
with his seventy-two panels narrating the entire life of Christ. It has recently been the
subject of detailed research and a minute and delicate restoration.

Gastronomy
   The typical meals of the Beneventan area include: vegetable soups and hams. However,
most of the products that enrich gastronomy in this area can be related to an “artistic and
qualitative craftsmanship”: from “torrone” to the vaste range of tinned food.

Benevento flavours
    First course lovers should try the home-made pasta: orecchiette, cicatielli or fusilli with
meat sauce or mixed with broccoli. Just as tempting are pasta, beans and rind or pasta and
cauliflower. Second courses offer gluttonous, savory dishes like a variety of barbecued meat
and “ammugliatelli”, together with vegetables and side dishes with pore mushrooms and
artichokes.

Evenings
   In the evening enjoy dinner in one of the town’s excellent restaurants. After dinner, you
can go to the Theatres “Vittorio Emanuele”, “Palazzo De Simone”, “San Nicola”, the cinemas
“Massimo”, “San Marco” or enjoy a concert at “Calandra”. Finally, at the end of the day,
typical pubs offer a quiet atmosphere to enjoy while listening to music and sipping a long
drink.

Benevento for all seasons!
    There is an eventful calendar all year round, in the whole area. In winter there
are two theatrical seasons: at Comunale “Vittorio Emanuele” Theatre and “San Nicola”
Theatre. June is devoted to literature, with the organization of an important part of
the Strega prize when the town meets the authors who are competing for the final
prizes. July is devoted to classical theatre in the striking setting of the Roman Theatre.
September continues the theatre season with performances, including “Benevento
Città Spettacolo”, one of the most important Italian theatrical festivals, that are held
all over the town: Roman Theatre, Rocca dei Rettori, in the squares and other theatres.
Moving on to folklore, in mid-August, there is the enjoyable wheat festival in honor
of St. Rocco, at Foglianise, featuring braided wheat carts that reproduce the façades
of the most important monuments in the world; while at the beginning of October
there is the international hot-air balloon meeting at Fragneto Monforte.
    In addition to the Feast of Madonna delle Grazie (from 1st to 3rd July), many
Fairs take place in Benevento from March to September as well as surviving rites and
myths of pagan inspiration, in particular those related to the Legend of Witches that,
according to the tradition, are indissolubly linked with Benevento.
    Throughout Samnium there are many events and important folk meetings: the
“Infiorate” (flower festivals) at Cusano Mutri and Santa Croce; the festivals “Due notti
al Castello” (Old Apice Castle) and “Castrum Eventi” (Ceppaloni); the “Sagre” (food
festivals) at Forchia, Sant’Agata de’ Goti, Campolattaro, Faicchio, Apice, Casalduni,
Buonalbergo, Bonea, S. Lorenzello, S. Marco de’ Cavoti, Castelpoto, Sassinoro, Reino,
S. Lorenzo, Montefalcone, Pietraroja, Pietrelcina: a long list including Patron Saints’
celebrations, markets, costume parades. More information is available at the

An art tour
   Devote a morning to art, tracing back its origins and coming up to the present. Your
impressive journey through the centuries begins as you pass under the Roman Trajan’s
Arch, a monument to the great emperor and his famous deeds. Not far from the arch is
one of the largest, ancient Roman Theatres still standing, built during the reign of Commodus
(open from 9.00 until one hour before sunset, tickets cost € 2; tel. 082429979). Our
journey through the Roman period ends with a visit to the Ponte Leproso, the old road that

continued the Via Appia into Benevento. Going back in time and walking towards the town
centre, it is worth pausing for thinking in the medieval St. Sofia’s Church, built in 762 by
Arechi II and later enriched with a magnificent Romanesque cloister. Admirers of military
architecture should visit the remains of the Lombard fortress of Torre delle Catene and the
Rocca dei Rettori built by John XXII, modeled on the Avignon forts. By the end of the
morning you will have returned to the present: stroll around the Hortus Conclusus, the
garden dotted with sculptures and works of art by the renowned Beneventan artist Mimmo
Paladino (9.00 - 13.00 /16.00 - 18.00).

Handicraft
    Pottery and lace are the highest expressions of Samnite handicraft, which can be discovered
following an itinerary across the production of precious objects made with traditional
techniques, of wicker, wood, marble, clay and wrought iron objects, at Cerreto Sannita,
Molinara, Montesarchio, Pontelandolfo, S. Giorgio del Sannio, S. Giorgio la Molara, S.
Lorenzello, Telese Terme.

Excursions
    Enjoy an afternoon out of town immersed in nature, art and history. The environs abound
in vast stretches of woods, rivers and streams, pastures with wild horses and steep, rocky
mountains creating a breathtaking landscape that has always had a particular allure. Apart
from destinations centring on art or nature, just out of town there are two important
itineraries, authentic panaceas for the spirit and the body. Attracting pilgrims of all
nationalities, Pietrelcina, the birthplace of Padre Pio, is one of the most important religious
centres in Italy. Further on, at Telese Terme, the invigorating sulfur springs, equipped for all
types of therapy, are beneficial in treating diseases of the skin, the respiratory and digestive
systems.

The kilns of Charles of Bourbon
    Cerreto’s pottery has its roots in the school of popular art that evolved from the fusion
between Arab, Gothic and, later, Renaissance culture. Pottery production made a qualitative
leap in the eighteenth century and it was by the River Titerno, between Cerreto Sannita and
San Lorenzello, that pottery enjoyed a fascinating, artistic season. The old wood kilns found
next to the river testify to a strong past tradition, as do the pieces belonging to private
collections that European museums contend for.
    It is here that the Giustiniano brothers, both ceramists, were born, summoned to Naples
by Charles of Bourbon to work in the Royal Factory of Capodimonte. Today the history of
ceramics has come back to life in the new production: plates, jugs, holy water stoups and
pharmacy jars evoke a chapter of southern art that takes us back to the eighteenth-
century Naples.

Scipionyx Samniticus
   The fish-shaped limestones at Pietraroja in Benevento province represent the most
important Italian paleontological layer. This natural monument fits within an environment


                                              95
                                                                                            Free time



of highly scientific relevance for its distinctive geological, morphological and biological aspects.
     The fossils of Pietraroja were quoted by Scipione Breislak for the first time in “Topografia
fisica della Campania” in 1798.
     The first excavations were started by the naturalist Oronzio Gabriele Costa who published
the results in 20 years, starting in 1846. Later studies about the fossil fauna were carried out
by Bassani and D’Erasmo (1915). In the most recent years the studies have been continued
by the Department of Paleontology of the University of Naples “Federico II” and by the
University of Sannio.
     Thanks to the excellent state of conservation, in the layer of Pietraroja, there are more
than 20 species of fish, among them the Coelodus genus. The layer has also given tetrapods;
many of them have not been described yet; besides at least one fossil of amphibians has been
identified and described and, recently, two crocodiles and a dinosaur have been added to the
list.
     In particular, the young dinosaur, called Scipionyx Samniticus, is extremely interesting
from various points of view. It is a specimen of a young carnivorous dinosaur, and the
perfect conservation of many of its soft tissues and its internal organs has allowed to
discover interesting details about the paleobiology of the tetropods.
     Its palaeographic collocation could be an important proof to reconstruct the geographical
conditions of Southern Italy during the Cretaceous period. Besides, the presence of an
amphibious confirms the proximity of lands out of water and a palaeographic picture of the
Italian peninsula, very different from the one known up to now.

The waters of Telese
    The Romans went to the thermae not only for personal hygiene, but also following the
advice of the disciples of Aesculapius.
    Thermal therapy proved to be effective against all kinds of illnesses; from rheumatism to
diseases of the skin, from colitis to gastritis, from bronchitis to diseases of the ear, nose and
throat. In addition, thermal therapy helped improve the quality of life.
    Just like today! For the last two thousand years, the thermal spas at Telese have been a
natural, therapeutic, and inexpensive resource.
    The water pours out from various springs at the foot of the Samnite Arce, covered with
scrubs and woods. Its therapeutic, and healthy qualities have placed Telese, its Thermal Park
and its sulfurous waters once more on the Italian and European thermal spa circuit.

A jewel among the vineyards
    A stop in Sant’Agata dei Goti during our travels is a duty, not only for men of culture but
for all those who love our patrimony of art and history.
    The ancient Roman name of this wonderful town that is set “...on the border between
Campania and the Sannio district, on the top of a steep rock and surrounded by two streams”
was Saticola.
    Sant’Agata is a treasure chest rich in ancient memories, monuments dating back to
the Middle Ages, sculptures and paintings, eminent relics.

   Famous lovers of the past fell in love with the town, from the Duke of Noja (author of
the famous map of Naples) to Sir William Hamilton, from Momsen to Benedetto Croce.
   Cesare De Seta, in a monograph published by Laterza some years ago, wrote that the
formative and critical years in the history of Sant’Agata were the XIII, XIV, and XVII centuries.
The others were stagnant centuries. One of the town bishops was St. Alfonso Maria de’
Liguori who, in the peace and calm of Sant’Agata, composed two famous Christmas novenas:
“When the infant was born” and “You descend from the stars”. A visit to Sant’Agata is an
opportunity to be at peace with oneself and the world.

Morcone
    It is one of the most popular little towns in the Samnium, 30 km far from Benevento, at
600 m above the sea level, along the river which connects Benevento to the counties of Lazio
and Molise. It is located at the foot of the Matese massif.
    It is a renown farming centre with handicraft and medium-sized industrial sectors and
also a tourist resort for its location on the Tammaro river.
    A visit is recommended to the old centre, the Bow-shaped Fountain at the end of Italia

square, bell tower and numerous works of art inside it, the Palaces of the Afflittis,
Colesantis, Carafas, Princes of Columbrano, and Uccis, and the ruins of the old Murgantia.
    It is worth visiting also the Sannìa House, seat of the Museum and the Sannia Library,
the churches of St. Salvatore, St. James, the Holy Annunziata, St. Nicholas, St. Bernardino
and the Convent of Cappuccini (which hosted Saint Pio), whose church is dedicated to
Saints Philip and James.
    Morcone is the starting place for a very interesting naturalist excursion to Bocca della
Selva (1400 m above s.l.) and for a tourist-cultural itinerary along the valley of the Tammaro
river.

Pietrelcina
    Pietrelcina is located at 345 m above the sea level, along the main road, on the bight of
a stream, which flows into the Tammaro river. Pietrelcina is 12 kilometers east of Benevento.
    A farming little town, with medium-sized industrial activities for the production of food
and drinks and for the working of marbles.
    Pietrelcina is famous all over the world for Francesco Forgione, born there in 1887; last
year he was made a Saint under the name of Saint Pio. Pietrelcina appears for the first
time in a document of 1101.
    Particularly remarkable are the old centre, the Monastery Church of the Holy Family,
the Parish Church of Madonna degli Angeli and, above all, the birthplace of Saint Pio,
the room (at Torretta) where he lived as a student-friar (due to his bad health conditions,
doctors had him back to Pietrelcina to let him enjoy his native pure air), the St. Anne’s
Church and the Forgione’s Farm at Piana Romana, with the elm by which the young
Saint Pio received the stigmata.

                    THE ITALIAN UNIVERSITY SYSTEM

In accordance with the 1999 reform, Italian university studies are organised into 3 cycles.

I. FIRST CYCLE
    Undergraduate studies consist in Corsi di Laurea-CL (1st degree courses) aimed at
guaranteeing undergraduate students an adequate command of general scientific methods
and contents as well as specific professional skills.
    General access requirement is the Italian school leaving certificate awarded after 13 years
of global schooling; also foreign comparable qualifications may be accepted. Admission to
individual degree courses may be subject to specific course requirements. First degree courses
last 3 years. The Laurea-L (1st degree) is awarded to undergraduates who have earned 180
credits.

II. SECOND CYCLE
    Graduate studies include 1) Corsi di Laurea Specialistica-CLS; 2) Corsi di Specializzazione
di 1° livello-CS1; 3) Corsi di Master Universitario di 1° livello-CMU1.
    CLS are aimed at providing graduates with an advanced level of education for the exercise
of a highly qualified activity in specific areas. Admission to CLS is subject to a previous
Italian 1st degree (L) or a foreign comparable degree; the degree course lasts 2 years. The
final degree, Laurea Specialistica-LS (2nd degree), is awarded to graduates who have earned
a global amount of 300 credits, including those of the 1st degree that have been recognised
for access to the CLS (maximum 180); besides, the drawing up of an original dissertation is
also compulsory.
    A limited number of CLS regulated by specific EU directives (CLS in dentistry, human
medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, architecture) share the following different features:
access is subject to an Italian school leaving certificate or a foreign comparable qualification;
admission is always subject to entrance exams; the degree course lasts 5 years (human medicine
takes 6 years).
    CS1 are devised to provide the knowledge and abilities needed for the practice of highly
qualifying professions; they may be established exclusively in application of specific Italian
laws or EU directives. Admission is subject to a previous Laurea (1st degree) or a foreign
comparable degree and to the passing of a competitive examination; the course length
changes between 2 and 3 years. The final degree, called Diploma di Specializzazione di
primo livello - DS1 (1st level specialization degree) is conferred to graduates who have
earned 300-360 credits globally, including those of the 1st degree, that have been recognised
for accessing to the CS1.
    The CMU1s consist in advanced scientific courses or higher continuing education studies,
open to 1st degree-course graduate students (Laurea-L) or students with a foreign comparable
degree; admission may be subject to additional conditions. The course lasts minimum 1
year. The degree as Master Universitario di 1° livello-MU1 (1st level University Master) is
awarded to graduates who have earned at least 60 credits.



                                              105
III THIRD CYCLE
    Postgraduate studies are as follows:
    1) Corsi di Dottorato di Ricerca-CDR (research doctorate programmes);
    2) Corsi di Specializzazione di 2° livello-CS2 (2nd level specialization courses);
    3) Corsi di Master Universitario di 2° livello-CMU2 (2nd level University Master’s
Degree courses).
    CDRs aim at training postgraduates for very advanced scientific research or for high
professional skills; they envisage the use of suitable teaching methodologies such as updated
technologies, study periods abroad, stages in specialistic research centres. Access is subject
to a previous Italian 2nd degree (LS) or a foreign comparable degree; admission is subject
to the passing of very competitive exams; official length is not less than 3 years; the
drawing up of an original dissertation is necessary for awarding the 3rd degree called
Dottorato di Ricerca - Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy).
    CS2s aim at providing postgraduates with knowledge and abilities as required in the
practice of highly qualifying professions; they may be established exclusively in application
of specific Italian laws or EU directives. Access is subject to a previous LS (2nd degree)
or to an equivalent degree; admission is subject to the passing of an examination; the
course length is generally 1 year, except for all CS2s of the medicine sector which may
take up to a maximum of 5 years.
    CMU2s consist in advanced scientific courses or higher continuing education studies,
open to the holders of an LS or a foreign comparable degree; admission may be subject to
additional conditions. Studies take not less than 1 year. The degree (Master Universitario
di 2° livello-MU2) is awarded to postgraduates who have earned not less than 60 credits.

    Classes of Degree Courses: educational contents of individual degree courses are
autonomously determined by universities. Individual institutions, however, when establishing
a CL or a CLS, have to adopt a few general requirements fixed at national level in relation to
groups (classi*) of similar degree courses; such national requirements may not bind more
than the 2/3 of each curriculum.
    * Degree courses, sharing the same educational objectives and the same fundamental
types of teaching-learning activities, are organised into groups called “classi di appartenenza”
(classes of degree courses).
    University Educational Credits: degree courses are structured in credits (crediti formativi
universitari). A university credit corresponds to 25 hours of work per student, time for
personal study included. The average annual workload of a full time student is conventionally
fixed at 60 credits.

    Courses are divided into cycles that go from September to December, from January to
