Thank you!
The “Studium” in Pavia was founded in the 10th centuty and it is reported in Lotario’s Diploma in 961. It was reorganized four centuries later by the Visconti family who settled it in the present place and gave it the statute of a free University.
Petrarca, whom Galeazzo the Second had entrusted with the task of collecting the Library of the Visconteo Castle, gives a similar description of Pavia in a letter to Boccaccio in 1365: “The position of the town is much more striking than other towns [...], Pavia emerges from the plain, just enough to dominate it and, stretching on a hillside, the town raises its numerous towers to the sky in such a free and panoramic view that I do not believe another lowland town has a more magnificent and wonderful sight”.

    Thanks Maria for your visit and comment. You are right, of course. The University of Bologna (founded in 1088) is widely recognised as the oldest university in continuous operation, considering that it was the first to use the term universitas. The University of Pavia was founded in 1361 (the king of Italy Lotario, in the 9th century, established the Pavese Studium, forerunner of the university).
