a little bit of history...
The first settlements can be traced back to the Etruscan and Sannitca civilizations, and date back to the VI-V century. b.c, as evidenced by the findings of the Archaeological Area of Fratte, and the remains preserved in the Archaeological Provincial Museum.
They were followed by the Romans who in 194 BC transformed Salerno from a military «Castrum» to «cives Romani». Via Popilia (now Via Tasso) connected the city with Pompeii, Neapolis and Lucania.
After the fall of the Old Roman Empire of the West, the Byzantine domination followed, then the Lombard. Under the guidance of Arechi II, the city experienced a further cultural impulse: the marvelous complex of San Pietro a Corte built on ancient Roman baths, the Arechi castle, and the foundation of the ancient Medical School of Salerno, the first institution for teaching medicine in the western world. Thanks to it, the city acquired the name of HIPPOCRATICA CIVITAS over time. The medical school was the first in the world to give women access to studies. Trotula de Ruggiero was one of the great medics – known as MULIERES SALERNITANAE – and was recently depicted in the murals of Via Vinciprova by Jorit Agoch, a famous Neapolitan street artist, known for his depictions of San Gennaro and Maradona in Naples and Ahed Tamimi in Bethlehem.
The Norman Robert Guiscard brought Salerno to its maximum splendor and in 1076 he named it the capital of his possessions – Duchy of Puglia and Calabria – thus acquiring the title of OPULENTISSIMA SALERNO. The construction of the Cathedral of San Matteo with its charming cloister dates back to this period.
Salerno, Capital of Italy
In September 1943, during the Second World War, it was the scene of the so-called Salerno landing: with this operation the Allies entered the Tyrrhenian coast of the Italian peninsula and paved the way to advance towards Rome. In the period following the landing, from February 1944, the city hosted the first post-fascist government of Italy (Badoglio government) and the fleeing royal family, becoming in fact the capital of Italy until the liberation of Rome in June 1944. At this juncture there was the so-called Turn of Salerno, with which the anti-fascists, the monarchy and Badoglio found a compromise for a government of national unity. In memory of the role of capital played by the city at the end of the last world war, on 7 January 2012 Salerno received a copy of the first flag.
