Since its formation the University of Bari was born by declaring distinctly its willingness to open up to the East. But until then, and still for long time, the opening up of the University of Bari to the Mediterranean countries does not go far the Adriatic sea, because the rest of the Mediterranean sea was a continent, precisely Africa, that is considered only a territory of conquest, where “the Italian imperial power” had to overflow. After a short analysis of trends that characterize story of University of Bari, in this essays we are focusing especially on the last twenty years, considering the most relevant trends of the presence of female university foreign students from Mediterranean countries. The analysis is referred also to presences of foreign students, especially female ones, in Apulia university system and in others Italian universities. This presence is related with the more wide migration flows.
