Overview

The origin of the University of Bari dates back to 1581, when the "Collegio della Compagnia del Gesù" started the University degree in Philosophy and Human Sciences. At the beginning of the 18th Century the new "illuministic ideology" pushed forward the needs in the area of physical and natural sciences: as a consequence, curricula in Medicine, Law, Chimestry, and Botanics were activated in Altamura. In 1772 the Royal College moved the Universiy activitiy from Atamura to Bari, including the very outstanding curricula in Legislation and Agriculture. At the beginning of the 19th Century, New University Schools (Licei) were activated by G. Murat in the Apulia Region. Some of these Schools were closed in 1861/2, after the creation of the Italy Nation , other Schools were moved to Naples. At the same time, in order to continue the University activity, it was taken the decision to build the "Atheneum" in Bari. The construction started on March 14, 1868. The building was ready on December 28, 1889. The University of Bari was instituted in October 9, 1924, on the foundations of the ancient Graduate Schools of Pharmacy and Notaryship activated immediately after the Unification of Italy as substitutes of the former "Reale Liceo delle Puglie". In January 1925 the Faculty of Medicine was set up and included the pre-existing School for Midwives, and the School of Pharmacy was transformed into a Faculty.

Morever, with the same four-year Plan the Faculty of Architecture was intituted and then transfered jointly at the Faculty of Engeneering into Polite-cnico. Under the reform of the University regulations (n.341/90, and by the virtue of the University Development Program for the three-year period 1991/3, January 31, 1992, the authorization to istitute the following Diploma was granted, Plant Breeding - focus on "Cropping Techniques for Nursery-Grown Fruit and Vegetable (decentralized branch in Foggia); Animal Breeding - focus on "Aquaculture and Mariculture"; Animal Breeding - focus on Mariculture, Fishery and Seafood Processing" (decentralized branch in Taranto); Expert in the field of Cultural Properties; Journalism (decentralized branch in Foggia (not yet operational); Tour operator (not yet operational; Translators and...
