Nola antica 

With the monograph Nola Antica Vincenzo Quindici offers the city of Nola and all scholars a valuable synthesis, enriched by a lucid personal contribution, of the ancient history of the city, since its origins by the Ausones. The thread of the story unravels through the Oscan phase, the relations with the Etruscans and Greeks, the presence of Hyria. The research extends to the foedus aequum with Rome, sheds light on the siege of Hannibal and on the social war, in which Nola sided against Rome. Suggestive pages concern in particular the death of Augustus apud urbem Nolam and the refusal of water to the poet Virgil. Ancient Nola closes with the testimony of St. Augustine on the sacking of the city by the Goths of Alaric.
A precious document, like a legacy for those who want to continue questioning the past with an ethical tension towards the future.
