It involves the world of archeology and ancient Italic or Campanian art with a particular focus on Mother Matuta of the Campanian Museum of Capuawhere among the magnificent tuff statues of women with babies on their laps one breathes authentic auspices of spirituality and realism, ancestral worship and rituals, family and “ex voto”, nourishment and fertility: in a word rebirth.

Campano Museum & Luigi Vanvitelli University
The Campanian Provincial Museum of Capua is the most significant of the Italic civilization of Campania, as underlined by the archaeologist Amedeo Maiuri: founded in 1870 and inaugurated in 1874, it is housed in the ancient Palazzo Antignano, directed by Giovanni Solino and is owned by the Provincial of Caserta.
It preserves priceless archaeological, historical and artistic treasures, a mirror of a metropolis that has seen different populations: Osci, Etruscans, Samnites, Romans, Lombards, Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese, Spaniards…
It is divided into two sections: Archaeological and Medieval with an important Library attached.
The most unique and precious collection it houses is that of the “Mothers”, among the rarest that Italian and foreign museums can boast.
In 1845, during an excavation carried out for agricultural work by Mr. Patturelli, in the locality of Petrara, the remains of a large votive altar came to light with architectural friezes and tuff statues, which reproduced seated women with children on their laps, proving the existence in that place of a temple. The venerated goddess was probably the “Mater Matuta”, an ancient Italic divinity of dawn and birth and the matres represented “ex voto”: a propitiatory offering for the granting of the supreme good of fertility.
Founded in 2005, the Department of Political Sciences of the Luigi Vanvitelli University of Campania pursues the objective of training students through interdisciplinary methodologies, providing the cultural tools to govern the dynamics of global society, aimed at guiding new policy actors for the territory in the public and private sector and to educate to a broad vision of international relations and regional integration processes in the Euro-Mediterranean context.
