The Church of Santa Maria de Lama is one of the oldest churches built in Salerno, when the city was under the control of the Lombard power, between the tenth and eleventh centuries .
The name “de Lama” is probably due to the stream (Lamia) that flowed close to the church below the street level.
It is possible to visit the remains of the first church in the crypt where there are amazing frescoes’ remains.

Thanks to the studies of the archaeo-anthropological team of the Uniersity of Chieti, we are able to know about the unaware use of the antibiotics in the ancient Pompeii! The archaeoanthropologists have noticed traces of tetracyclines (the element of the aspirin) in the bones of the victims of the eruptions of the 79 a.d. This element was from the mold that contaminated the layers of straw in which figs and pomegranates were placed to dry. The Romans were cured without knowing it thanks to the food preferences.
