Salerno

On the initiative of the Salernitana Medical School Foundation, the “Historia Salerni” project was created, a promotion and research committee for the re-enactment of maritime commercial Salerno with a strong emphasis in a contemporary key.

“Aware of this fascinating past that is perpetuated in the present, the Foundation wants to testify and pay homage to the thousand-year-old internationality of Salerno, which, with its port, was a crossroads, today we would call it a hub, of spices, fabrics, animals and above all of civilization. That port that was the crucible for the creation of the golden age of Salerno and its “Schola Salerni” – explain the promoters – The idea is to create a scenographic historical moment by representing the meeting between King Manfredi and the magister. of the Schola Giovanni da Procida, with a medieval multi-ethnic market, and at the same time a not only ideal but also concrete twinning between the cities of origin of the merchants of the time but also between all the most important companies of the Mediterranean basin. Today it would be called a commercial exchange platform , but we want to call it as Giovanni da Procida and Manfredi had thought of it, “The Fair of San Matteo”.

The committee was entrusted, in its presidency, to one of the greatest citizen connoisseurs of the mercantile and commercial matters of the Middle Ages, author of enlightening texts relating to this period, indomitable historical researcher and strong advocate of a commercial centrality of our Salerno, that is, the lawyer Alfonso Mignone.
