This is the house where Antonio Cardarelli was born on the 29th March 1831 and where he lived until the age of seventeen, when he moved to Naples in order to study Medicine. The building is situated in Civitanova del Sannio (Piazza Armando Diaz) and one of Cardarelli's nieces now abides there.
On the front of the house has been placed a little, marble tablet, with which the municipality wants to remember the “great clinician”, as he was called.
The plate bears the inscription: "IN QUESTA CASA NACQUE / IL 29 MARZO 1831 / ANTONIO CARDARELLI / CHE MAESTRO INSUPERATO DELLA / CLINICA MEDICA NAPOLETANA / SENATORE DEL REGNO / TANTA FULGIDA LUCE IRRADIO' / BENEFICA ED IMPERITURA / IL COMUNE / 20 MARZO 1931"
The epigraph means: "In this house was born / on the 29th March of 1831 / Antonio Cardarelli / who unsurpassed master of / Neapolitan medical clinic / senator of the Kingdom / so much bright light radiated / healthy and eternal / The municipality / 20th March 1931"
