Our School Istituto Tecnologico Statale “L. Vanvitelli”  is a Technical School for Surveyors, located in Cava de’ Tirreni, very close to the Amalfi Coast and Salerno.

OUR HISTORY

The  School  was founded on October 1st, 1962 thanks to the support of our local authority and the financial aids of the Province of Salerno. It was a branch of the Technical School “Genovesi” in Salerno. At first it was located in Della Corte Palace in Corso Umberto I and  was named “Matteo Della Corte”. It offered 5 year courses of studies in two areas:

  • Accountancy
  • Surveying

with five classes for each area.

Later when the school population increased, extra classrooms were added. On 23rd November 1980 a violent Earthquake destroyed part of the school so classes were delocated in different local schools.

In 1989/90, it started operating as an autonomy school and  was located in Generale Luigi Parisi Street. At the beginning of the 1990’s the school was named “Luigi Vanvitelli” to honour the famous architect who had built the imposing Royal Palace in Caserta and many other important works.

Nowadays the Secondary Technical School “L.Vanvitelli” is located in Via Papa Giovanni XXIII in Cava. It has 29 classrooms, 18 in Cava de’ Tirreni  and 11 classrooms in its own branch in Nocera Superiore at 7 kilometers from Cava.
