The School, founded in 1811 to prepare the staff of the Archives Regions, today is open to everyone. Heir to a long tradition, it provides a highly specialized training as its teachings are based on the great contribution of the extensive documentary heritage preserved in the Archives. In fact, the frontal lessons are combined with laboratory activities and in-depth seminars. The course lasts two years. Enrolment and attendance are free. The lessons are held from November to June at the State Archives of Naples. In Via del Grande Archivio 5.
The entrance qualification is the secondary school diploma. Candidates must pass a selective admission test designed to prove their knowledge of Latin and history.
Teachings, frequency, and final exam
Attendance at lessons is compulsory to a minimum of 80%, as well as at exercises. At the end of the course, students will take an exam, consisting of two written tests, one of Palaeography and Diplomacy and the other of Archiving, and an oral test on the subjects taught, upon passing which will be awarded the Diploma of Archivists, Palaeography and Diplomacy.
