Founded in October 1924, the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” is presently constituted of 15 Faculties in three different campuses: Bari, Taranto and Brindisi. It is the largest University of the Apulian Region, with about 60,000 students, 2,000 professors and 1,500 administrators. The University of Bari is the chair of CUM – theConsortium of Mediterranean Universities, which was created in 1983 and is recognized by UNESCO as a supernational organization containing 158 universities from all the Countries of the Mediterranean Basin. Furthermore, the University of Bari participates in the Santander Group and CIRCEOS (Interuniversity Centre for Research and Cooperation with Eastern and South-Eastern Europe), which was founded in Bari in 2003 with the aim of promoting and strengthening cooperative relations with the universities of Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. Always mindful of international education, the University of Bari welcomes about 250 international-mobility students per year, and facilitates the participation of over 300 of its own students in study courses at other European universities. It promotes the implementation of a number of cultural cooperation agreements and participates in many international research and cooperation projects.
Among them, EDB (Epigraphic Database Bari: www.edb.uniba.it) has the aim of archiving in an online digital repository all the Christian inscriptions in Rome through the end of the 8th century C. E. This amounts to a large dossier of 45,000 texts and images documenting postclassical European culture that will be for the fisrt time completely digitised and made available for everyone.
