The residential construction in the Middle Ages in Benevento and Capua has received occasional interest from scholars who have studied these urban sectors, which played an essential role throughout the Middle Ages and beyond. For both cities, with a similar perception of recovering the Antiques, previous and ongoing studies show one or two-storey dwellings using both wood and masonry. Also, in Benevento, we know the so- called “casa-pontile”, an indispensable structure to connect the same property located on different sides of a public road. In Capua, it is possible to grasp urban traits that preserve medieval cores of origin and that, departing conspicuously from the pattern of allotments, offer interesting research perspectives on the monumental evolution of palatial construction. Also, for Salerno, studies on residential buildings are not numerous. However, the perusal of the published, the rereading of the archival data related to the excavations conducted in the last forty years primarily related to the post-earthquake restructuring of 1980, contribute to completing the picture highlighted years ago by Paolo Delogu and to clarify how the post-classical settlements were structured while still leaving areas of shadow regarding the forms, the techniques and the workers. In order to understand the housing typologies inside the fortified sites, the revision of the data related to Capaccio Vecchia, together with those which emerged from the excavation campaigns of the sites of Lettere, Mercato San Severino, Mondragone and Nocera Inferiore allow ascertaining common characteristics, which are not surprising considering their function and location.
