University Information

Parthenope University of Naples was established in 1919 by the Vice Admiral Leonardi Cattolica with the name “Regio Istituto Superiore Navale”. Born as an institute of higher education specialized in maritime studies: marine science, maritime economics and logistics. In 1999, the departments of Law, Engineering and Sports Sciences were added to the two long-standing ones of Economics and Nautical Science which jointly brought the Institute significant growth in the number of students. Then, the name of the Institute officially changed to “Parthenope University of Naples”. From July 2013, a new set of study curricula was introduced and also a department-based organization for research. University is committed to the pursuit of social, cultural and economic development. The Department of Engineering is a flagship structure at the University of Naples Parthenope due to its scientific and technological research and teaching programs in the field of engineering.

The University of Naples Federico II is the oldest public university in the world. The king’s main purpose was to create an institution of higher learning that would put an end to the predominance of the universities of northern Italy, most notably those of Bologna and Padua, which were considered either too independent or under the strong influence of the Pope. The Department of Industrial Engineering (DII) was officially founded in 2013 with the confluence of professors and researchers working in different research fields: Applied Thermofluidodynamics and Environmental Conditioning, Aerospace Engineering, Engineering Management, and Energy Engineering). DII aims to train highly qualified professionals, able to work into the Management, Mechanical, Aerospace and Naval industries both nationally and internationally. Professors and researchers carry out research projects and activities in collaboration with national and international companies aimed at solving business problems and participating in research tenders for obtaining public funding.

Local Information

Founded by Greeks in the first millennium BC, Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban areas in the world. Naples' historic city centre is the largest of its kind in Europe and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A wide range of culturally and historically significant sites are nearby, including the Palace of Caserta and the Roman ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Naples is also known for its natural beauties, such as Posillipo, Phlegraean Fields, Nisida, and Vesuvius. Neapolitan cuisine is noted for its association with pizza, which originated in the city, as well as numerous other local dishes. The best-known sports team in Naples is the Serie A football club S.S.C. Napoli, two-time Italian champions who play at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in the southwest of the city, in Fuorigrotta. Unlike cities in which art is stored in museums and daily life happens on the streets, Naples's distinctive mark is its folclore: people living and working among the artistic beauties of the city. Tourism has become a key factor in the city's economy. These pages of tourist site aim to provide a series of useful or even essential information to help you get to know the city: Comune di Napoli - Tourism
