The University of Catania (Italian: Università degli Studi di Catania) is a university located in Catania, Italy, and founded in 1434. It is the oldest university in Sicily, the 13th oldest in Italy and the 29th oldest university in the world. With a population of over 60,000 students, it is the main university in Sicily. The university was founded by King Alfonso V of Aragon (who was also King Alfonso I of Sicily). A charter was granted after two royal councilors (Adamo Asmundo and Battista Platamone) convinced the king to accept the founding of a "Studium Generale" in Catania, with the papal recognition arriving ten years later from Pope Eugene IV (18 April 1444). Alfonso V with this gesture wanted to compensate the city (in which there had been recently established the Royal Court) for moving the Sicilian capital from Catania to Palermo. Following the Italian Higher Education reform introduced by the law 240/10 and adopted by the University of Catania in its new Statute, Faculties have been disactivated and Departments have been reorganized. The University of Catania has now 23 Departments[1] that, additionally to the traditional assignments of scientific research, are in charge of the organization and management of educational activities. There were the Faculties of Medicine, Philosophy, Canonic and Civil Law, and Theology and Arts. The first degrees were granted to ten students at the Cathedral, where the new graduates were given gold rings and a personal blessing from the Archbishop.
